A collaborative trial to explore sustainable models of primary health care delivery in remote communities.
The Remote Integrated and Collaborative Health (RICH) initiative is funded by a grant from the Murray Darling Basin Authority, Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation, the Commonwealth Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water and the Foundation.
Our current approaches to community and individual health are not working. Our health system is designed around 'illness and injury', not keeping people healthy in their communities.
The Remote Integrated and Collaborative Health (RICH) program was co-designed by the Foundation, InterHealthCare (a private allied health company with a passion for rural health) and our communities to reimagine health care as a high quality, community-led and integrated system that places people at the centre of care.
