The 13th National rural health conference: strong commitment bright future was held in Darwin NT 24 – 27 May 2015

The theme of this conference was People places possibilities. The conference had a strong focus on the social determinants of health, and presenters from sectors including education, employment, Indigenous affairs, community services, housing, transport, agriculture, fishing and mining had an important place on the program.

The conference allowed delegates to exchange up-to-date information, with a focus on how health-related challenges have been met. It  featured research reports, reviews of successful health-related services, arts-and-health presentations and analysis of some of the key policy issues of the day impacting on rural wellbeing. 

Delegates included people involved in rural, regional and remote health: clinicians and other health workers, managers and researchers. Participants also came from other sectors that contribute to the health of people in country Australia, such as education, the environment, transport, housing, economic development and community services. The conference aimed to recognise the roles played by people involved in these sectors, to widen the view of the rural and remote health community and to give depth and greater effectiveness to the endeavours to improve rural health.
