The theme of this year’s Annual report is “Solving the Puzzle”

The job of the RDWA is to fit the pieces of the puzzle together. We do this in a variety of ways. We provide services and programs to support our rural workforce and their communities. We also collaborate with the organisations that are responsible for the education and development of the future workforce. Importantly we are a point of translation for funders as we design and deliver programs and strategies to help fulfil their national and state agenda.

Our Annual report describes the programs and activities that have occurred in 2016-17.

With new three year funding agreements from the Commonwealth, Department of Health to support the rural primary health care workforce and new three year agreements to operate our Outreach programs we are well placed to continue to support the people who provide rural health services and those who receive them.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our efforts and the work that we do.  If you’d like to know more about the RDWA please feel free to contact us.
