Anyone involved in, or interested in rural health is invited to submit an abstract for consideration for the 2017 program.

“If you or your organisation has a commitment to good health and wellbeing in rural and remote Australia, now is the time to start thinking about presenting in a concurrent session at the 14th National Rural Health Conference to be held in Cairns, 26-29 April 2017,” said Geri Malone, Chairperson of the National Rural Health Alliance.

“The 14th National Rural Health Conference is the ideal place to share your ideas and knowledge and learn from others.  More than 1,000 rural and remote health champions will attend this biennial event, together with a number of international delegates also in Cairns for the 14th World Rural Health Conference being held 29 April – 2 May 2017.  The Conference will include around 30 keynote presentations, 220 concurrent speakers and 30 poster presentations. "

Delegates at the Conference will include health professionals who are providing rural and remote health services, decision makers, health consumers, non-government organisations and opinion leaders. 

The range of topics is broad and a list of suggested topics along with the abstract guidelines can be found on the Conference website.  Arts and health presentations, performances, installations and workshops are also encouraged.

The Conference provides many opportunities to be involved in ensuring that country people in Australia have a fair go into the future so why not consider submitting an abstract, sponsoring, exhibiting, or attending?

The call for abstracts for the concurrent sessions will be open from 1 June to 30 September 2016.  Abstracts are to be submitted online via
