About this Toolkit

This toolkit is a product of the Rural Health Research Gateway (Gateway), funded by the Health Resources and services administration's Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP). Gateway is an online library of research and expertise. It's free to use, searchable, and provides access to the work of all federally-funded Rural Health Research Centers and Analysis Initiatives.

The Rural Health Research Center Program is the only federal program that is dedicated entirely to producing policy-relevant research on healthcare in rural areas. The Centers study critical issues facing rural communities in a quest to secure adequate, affordable, high-quality health services for rural residents.
