  • Low-income urban or rural areas;
  • Minority communities;

The reports must include information on the current availability of services to these populations, whether access to such services has increased or decreased over the past ten years, and specific recommendations for the improvement of their primary care and health delivery systems, including disease prevention and comprehensive health care services.  Published special studies will be considered a public document.
