Partyline contributor guidelines, advertising and sponsorship

Partyline is the Alliance’s flagship publication. It is the magazine for good health and wellbeing in rural and remote Australia. It is a means of exchanging information between those with an interest in rural health. Partyline is your magazine. We seek your stories and news relating to the health and wellbeing of people living in rural and remote Australia. Contributions may cover, for example, successful local programs, leadership and empowerment, reflections on reform initiatives, opportunities for improved health, stories of personal and community commitment and resilience.

Partyline is an online magazine published four times a year. Its readers include people in rural and remote areas – both health professionals and health consumers – as well as health policymakers, rural health researchers, health students, universities, libraries, and rural and remote health services.
