CCK Recommendation 441

Australia should have a national policy on child health, which must include proper consideration of kids in rural and remote areas.

Recommendation Type: 
Emerging Theme: 


Should there be a stand alone Rural Child Health policy so that "trickle down economics" can't be applied. Would this ensure rural-proofing of all child health initiatives?

Once again it is critical to ensure that there is an understanding about the differing needs of communities and the effects of remoteness.
