Promoting wellness and better health
Innovative ideas for wellness and better health outcomes
Rural Doctors Foundation is passionate about supporting rural and remote communities to improve their health and have partnered with rural and remote communities to deliver innovative health programs.
As rural doctors, we’re in it with you. We have supported grassroots and local initiatives that most likely would have not got off the ground without our support.
It’s rural and remote people and their doctors working together in order to deliver solutions to make a big difference in their local community. From funding a program that normalises talking about mental health. To funding yoga programs and mentoring projects for vulnerable youth. As well as, putting life-saving emergency equipment in the hands of rural health services.
Providing free health checks
Helping rural people to see a doctor so they can stay healthy and well, with free health checks offered at rural events.
Connecting and inspiring indigenous youth

Improving physical and mental health and building connection

Providing allied health services to remote communities
