Your health care

Rural and Regional Health Australia (RRHA) is a central entry point on information about the Australian Government’s regional, rural and remote health, Indigenous and mental health programmes aimed at improving health services for people living in regional, rural and Australia.

RRHA has two contact points for regional, rural and remote health consumers and providers:

The website includes an interactive map showing health services in specific locations in all states and territories. The map is updated periodically to hold more place-based health information as it becomes available. In the same way more resources will be added to the website as it develops, making it a valuable tool both for the rural population and for health professionals.

The website also provides information on Indigenous health programs. The Australian Government has recently established the Indigenous Australians’ Health Programme to bring together funding streams to improve the focus on local health needs, better address priorities and areas of population growth, reduce overheads and better support efforts to achieve health equality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

The establishment of the Indigenous Australians’ Health Programme will consolidate four existing funding streams: primary health care base funding, child and maternal health programmes, Stronger Futures in the Northern Territory (Health) and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Chronic Disease Fund.

Information on services and initiatives under the IAHP is available at:

Information on the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Indigenous Safety and Wellbeing Programme is available at:
