Richard Cooke

South Africa

Personal and research interest in rural health now ingrained after a 7 year stint as a rural doc in the former Transkei, "the Wild Coast", Eastern Cape, South Africa. Recently joined the Centre for Rural Health team at Wits Medical School. Trained as a Family Physician, my specific interests lie in Family Medicine, Primary Health Care, and advocacy around "rural-proofing" of health policy to suit the underserved rural communities in South Africa and further afield.
