Remote and Rural Indigenous Allied Health Workforce Development Project
The Remote and Rural Indigenous Allied Health Workforce Development Project’s (RIAHP) primary objective was to stimulate and build the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health workforce in rural and remote communities. The project began in May 2017, and a report to DSS – outlining 26 recommendations – was submitted in February 2019. IAHA would like to thank the Warumungu, Bwgcolman and Manbarra peoples for their input, sharing of information, country and culture. IAHA also thank members of the RIAHP Steering Committee, the IAHA Board, IAHA partners, stakeholders and members for their support and contribution to this project.
