Our media releases

Read our latest releases 

Find media releases and breaking news issued by Rural Doctors Foundation. We provide insights and commentary on health issues impacting rural and remote communities. Particularly, around providing funding solutions and creating meaningful, lasting changes.

Rural doctors from the Foundation’s Board provide insight for media into important rural health issues. Or rather, we might be letting you know about the important initiatives we’re a part of. Such as, helping rural doctors receive vital emergency support in times of crisis. Or supplying protective hoods for hospitals during times of pandemics. Or bringing you good news about the meaningful way we can contribute to better health outcomes. The programs that matter to build healthier communities.

If it’s shaping rural and remote  health, we’re there to listen. As well as hopefully, fill the gaps that leave country people disadvantaged.

We welcome your questions or requests for interviews. Reach out to Fran Avon on 0407 236 341 or email favon@ruraldoctorsfoundation.org.au. High-res images available on request.
