Short description (intelligible to all):

Ambulatory care is an essential part of our health care system. This system faces major challenges, especially with respect to demographic changes, centralization of health care facilities as well as a combination of dwindling ressources and increasing costs. This change is already noticeable in rural environments. Small villages and dispersed settlements are affected by huge population decreases. Hence, the current medical infrastructure is no longer sustainable.
