The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will work on the Rural Telehealth Initiative with the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The programme aims to reduce health disparities and service provider challenges in rural areas, and to promote broadband services.
