About Rural and Regional Health Australia
On 4 November 2011, Rural and Regional Health Australia (RRHA) was established within the Department of Health, as a central entry point on information about Commonwealth regional health and ageing programmes for people living in regional Australia.
RRHA has two contact points for rural and regional health consumers and providers:
- our call centre 1800 020 103 (toll free)
RRHA also has a senior advocacy and engagement role across Government that supports a whole-of-government approach to tackling regional, rural and remote health issues.
An internal RRHA Board has been established to consider current and emerging rural/regional health concerns. A Departmental Deputy Secretary is Head of RRHA and Chair of the RRHA Board. Membership of the RRHA Board currently consists of senior executives of the Department. The Board meets regularly, with meetings attended by key rural stakeholders.
