dc.description.abstract A community survey was conducted in A1 awayda vil- lage, one of eight villages selected for study in the rural Gezira pro- vince of Sudan. The objective of the survey was to identify the main health, social and economic problems of people in rural areas and to set priorities as a first phase in a rural development program. The results showed a high illiteracy rate and poor socioeconomic status ag- gravated by the drought and famine which affected this area of Africa in the years 1983-85. There was an inadequate safe water supply, poor environmental sanitation and inadequate primary health care services. The major disease problems were malaria, diarrheal diseases and schistosomiasis. The implementation of primary health care services with special emphasis on maternal and child health and health educa- tion is a clear need. The impact of Sennar Sugar Agricultural Scheme on this village is also discussed. en_US
