NACCHO Aboriginal Health Workforce : @AMAPresident launches 5 point plan to build #Ruralhealth workforce

“The issues described by the AMA are serious and apply across the health workforce, including allied health professionals.”

 ” About one third of Australia’s population, approximately 7 million people, live in regional, rural and remote areas. These Australians often have more difficulty accessing health services than urban Australians, leading them to have a lower life expectancy and worse outcomes on leading indicators of health.

Death rates in regional, rural, and remote areas (referred to as ‘rural’ in this document unless otherwise specified) are higher than in major cities, and the rates increase in line with degrees of remoteness.”
