The National Rural Health Alliance is delighted to support the Parliamentary Friends of Rural and Remote Health Group. Established in September 2017 under the 45th Parliament, the group has been co‑chaired by rural MPs and long-time friends of the Alliance, the Hon Warren Snowdon, Member for Lingiari, and the Hon Warren Entsch, Member for Leichhardt.
The current co-chairs for the 47th Parliament are Dr Anne Webster and Fiona Phillips, MP.
This non-partisan group provides a forum for Senators and Members to ensure the organisations that assist those in rural and remote areas have a communication pathway to the Australian Government and are able to share concerns and successes.
The Alliance holds events with the Parliamentary Friends to discuss ways to advance the vision of the Alliance’s members—to improve the health and wellbeing of the 7 million people that live and work in rural and remote Australia.
