AbstractHealth is an essential input for development of human resources and quality of life and in turn the social and economic development of nation .A positive health status is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not only the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO, 1946).Health is a regardless priority for sustained development interventions both at the individual community and national levels. Improved health is a part of total socio-economic development and is regarded as an index of social development. A provision of basic health care services to rural community is the primary objective of the government as well non-government organizations in the context of rural development. Rural health services, safe drinking water, sanitation, nutrition, etc., have therefore, been brought together in the form of an integral package to improve the social, economic and health conditions of the people. Therefore, the primary goal of any health care delivery system is to organize the health services in such a manner as to optimally utilize the available resources, knowledge and technology, with a view to preventing and alleviating diseases, disability and sufferings of the people.
