National Strategic Framework for Rural and Remote Health promotes a national approach to policy, planning, design and delivery of health services in rural and remote communities.

The Framework promotes a national approach to policy, planning, design and delivery of health services in rural and remote communities and is directed at decision and policy makers at the national, state and territory levels. It may also be used by communities and local health service providers to plan services and programs according to local needs. Overall it aims to improve health outcomes and return on investment for rural and remote Australians.
