The National Rural Health Alliance focuses its advocacy and policy papers and activities on our vision of good health and wellbeing in rural and remote Australia.
The Council guides the development of the Alliance views on health policy and advocacy directions. These reflect the views of our 35 member bodies but may not reflect the full or particular views of all its member bodies.
See our Current Focus Areas for policy and advocacy activities. Search by topic for our policy documents, media releases and news (below). Or go to policy documents to find policy development, positions and submissions by paper type. Go to the fact sheets behind the policy issues. Or take a strategic look at the key rural health documents from the Alliance or other sources.
The National Rural Health Alliance strives to ensure the needs of the 31 per cent of Australians who live outside the major cities are considered in all national health and other policies. We take a broad and inclusive view of health across the wide range of topics listed below.
