The health status of rural and remote Australian communities is poorer than that of urban communities.

Comprehensive primary health care (PHC) services can reduce these health inequities, which by definition are unfair and remediable,1 through the provision of competent clinical care, population health programs, good access to secondary and tertiary care, and client and community advocacy to address health risk factors and social determinants.2

Learning Outcomes

  • Evaluate the impact of a comprehensive primary health care service model on key health performance indicators in a remote region of Australia
  • Review the cross-sectional 6-year retrospective evaluation of the results of a health service partnership between an Aboriginal community-controlled health service, a hospital and a community health service in north-west Western Australia
  • Medical Audience
