Help support rural and remote communities across Australia

Your help can save a life 

Donate today

You may give a one off donation or choose to donate on a regular basis. We are extremely grateful for your support. Regular donations enable us to plan for ongoing programs.  

Donating to Rural Doctors Foundation helps save lives in rural and remote communities. We’re a small but mighty organisation, and your help can really make a big impact on a rural community.

As rural doctors, we experience the challenges faced by those living in rural and remote communities every day

It’s tough sometimes living in rural and remote Australia. And it’s tough being a rural doctor. Distance, lack of health services and fewer good people make it hard to give the help we know is needed. The mortality rate for rural people is 1.8 times higher than in the city. 3 in 5 rural people don’t see a specialist, because there’s not one close by.

Rural Doctors Foundation was established because we care deeply about the communities where we live and work. And we want everyone to have the same chance at good health. With your help, we can do it.

“I have seen the stark disparity in access and equity of health care in rural communities compared to other regions.

It’s a career path that has seen my family settle in Stanthorpe – a place we are happy to call home.”

– Dan Halliday, Deputy Chair with daughter Grace
