The United States and Iran have not had official ties since the 1979 Islamic Revolution but Americans and Iranians often have similar problems.

Doctors in both countries, for example, often struggle to bring quality healthcare to their patients in rural areas.

Now, a Mississippi delta neighbourhood is learning from the Iranians on how they have successfully run a rural healthcare plan.

Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordan reports from the rural town of Greenwood, Mississippi.

Uhhmmmmmmmm …. Let me see, I believe that the idea of Iranian community healthcare came during beloved Shah governing!    Wasn’t under his rolling that he made sure those soldiers whom where educated enough ( women & men) instead of spending two years of their mandatory military posting in a forts, to be send it in a rural areas , to help out with teaching and healthcare (called sepah danesh & sepah behdasht)! At least that is what I remember from my living for 18 years during my youth in Iran. One can confirm these events by looking through books and newspapers. Current Iran regime has not provided one inch of ideas from themselves but to continue on what Shah has built or whet was going to start or they just simply have destroy one has been built so far!.
