This topic guide is designed to serve both as an introduction to Conducting Rural Health Research, Needs Assessment, and Program Evaluation and as a reference that collects the “best of the best” resources: selected documents, organizations, tools, funding opportunities, news items, events, and program examples.
Every effort has been made to ensure that this guide includes the most informative, useful, up-to-date, accessible resources which are publicly available. The aim, in this regard, is to be selective, not comprehensive – to collect and emphasize the best resources.
RHIhub’s staff reviews each guide annually and removes resources which have become dated or less-useful due to the dynamic nature of rural health. New resources are added continually throughout each year.
RHIhub’s collection contains thousands of useful and important resources which are not listed on a topic guide. All of RHIhub’s collection is accessible via our site-wide search or by contacting our information specialists directly for customized assistance.
