Abstract: Rural health policies over the past decade have been driven by the need to reduce health inequalities between metropolitan and rural Australia. These policies have concentrated on addressing workforce issues, targeting the medical workforce in particular. Little policy attention has focused specifically on the systematic development of sustainable comprehensive Primary Health Care (PHC) service models appropriate to rural and remote Australia. There is a need to know what model works best where, and why.
