Country organisation addressing rural health inadequacies
The recent Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report that found country Australians have “shorter lives, higher levels of disease and injury, and poorer access to health services,” is an all too familiar story – according to Marathon Health.
The not-for-profit is one of the few country health organisations based in country Australia with the core purpose to identify, deliver and sustain services to people within these communities.
Bryan Hoolahan, Marathon Health Executive of Governance and Quality, says the report makes the need for investment in country healthcare organisations all the more important.
