So far, in rural development literature, there are many programs and approaches which had been considered by international and national organizations. Today, the approach of integrated rural development in rural sustainable development context, after a period of decline, coupled with a new form, has been considered as the most effective approach of realizing sustainability. Healthy village programs are included in this approach of integrated rural development. In addition to emphasis on hygiene and therapeutic problems, other dimensions of sustainability have also been considered. The aim of current research is to introduce the approach of healthy village programmes in the form of cooperative companies as a means toward rural development. Therefore, for this purpose, current research first introduces this approach using library method and then the goals and strategies of this approach are also reviewed. Finally, it provides a model to establish the programs in cooperative format by studying the overlap of this program using cooperative principles.
Key words: Cooperative, healthy village, rural development, treatment.
