Rural and remote environments and health

  • Year: 2001
  • Author: Farley, R
  • Journal Name: Good Health - good country: from conception to completion: proceedings of the 6th National Rural Health Conference, Canberra
  • Country: Australia

What is a healthy community? In addressing this question the author argues that a healthy community is one that grows in a sustainable and equitable way and that the core issue is how to manage change in relation to landscape, employment and population in rural and remote communities. Issues which should constitute an agenda for a healthy rural community are identified and include: sustainable natural resource management; infrastructure; communications; adjustment; and local ownership and delivery, particularly in relationship to Aboriginal communities.
