Sustainable rural health project

Sustainable Rural Health Project

In rural areas it is challenging to attract doctors and health workers and maintain the services that are needed in communities. Rural people often have to travel away from homes to get the care they need, which is costly and can be stressful and demanding on people and their families.

To address health system and workforce issues in the Buloke, Loddon and Gannawarra region, Murray PHN, Boort District Health, Inglewood & Districts Health Service, East Wimmera Health Services and Northern District Community Health have formed the Integrated Health Network (IHN) Alliance.

The IHN Alliance is sharing resources and working together with communities, to future-proof the region’s healthcare services to ensure that people can get the care they need, where and when they need it.
