Overcoming access barriers in relation to primary health care is crucial to achieving equitable health outcomes for Australians living in rural and remote areas.  To address this issue, the Australian Primary Health Care Research Institute has established a Centre of Research Excellence in accessible and equitable primary health service provision in rural and remote Australia (CRE).

This Centre is a collaboration between Monash University School of Rural Health (Professor John Humphreys and Dr Matthew McGrail), the Centre for Remote Health, a joint centre of Flinders University and Charles Darwin University in Alice Springs (Professor John Wakerman), and the University of Sydney Department of Rural Health in Broken Hill (Associate Professor David Perkins and Professor David Lyle).

The CRE in rural and remote primary health care aims to develop:

A better understanding of health behaviour relating to primary health care service utilisation in rural and remote Australia;
 • Better measures of access to guide resource allocation relating to primary health care in small rural and remote communities;
 • A comprehensive framework for evaluating the impact of rural and remote primary health care services on access and equity of health outcomes; and
 • Evidence-based models of sustainable primary health care for different rural and remote contexts.
