15NRHC Recommendation - 03/24/2019 - 21:02

Our community - the work we do has the ability to profoundly change the health and well-being of our communities, our postcode should not determine our health and well-being status

Implement mechanisms that give control back to LOCAL communities across rural Australia to make Local decisions to improve health and well being. This includes timely information about our communities health status, power and funds not constrained by conditions but that encourage innovative Local sustainable solutions

Recommendation Type: 
Emerging Theme: 


Perhaps funding for health initiatives should be dependent on the establishment of non-hierarchical partnerships with local providers, to build local capacity, inform service development initiatives and encourage innovative, sustainable local solutions.
