National Strategic Framework for Rural and Remote Health

The National Strategic Framework for Rural and Remote Health promotes a national approach to policy, planning, design and delivery of health services in rural and remote communities.

The Framework has been developed through the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council’s Rural Health Standing Committee with the valued input of the National Rural Health Alliance and a wide range of other rural health stakeholders.
