The nine current priorities in rural and remote health

At its recent face to face meeting, Council of the Rural Health Alliance has confirmed the organisation's 9 current priorities in rural and remote health.

The Alliance will throw its weight behind moves to improve oral health services in rural areas. It is proposing a pathway to help students from rural areas to access and complete health professional training, and expects the new body responsible for leading on rural health, Rural Health Australia, to report to the public on progress towards better access and greater equity. High- speed broadband access, realistic aged care funding, and mental health services in areas where specialist staff are in short supply also feature.
