Information, Stronger Rural Health Strategy

The Stronger Rural Health Strategy aims to build a sustainable, high quality health workforce that is distributed across the country according to community need particularly in rural and remote communities. To meet the challenge of redistributing the workforce, the Strategy includes a range of incentives, targeted funding and bonding arrangements and will give doctors more opportunities to train and practice in rural and remote Australia. It will also enable a stronger role for nurses and allied health professionals in the delivery of more multidisciplinary, team based models of primary health care.

A series of factsheets relating to the Strategy have been made available in PDF form at
