Community participation in health service reform: the development of an innovative remote Aboriginal primary health-care service

Journal article

According to the authors, despite a long history of health policies designed to bring about improvements in the health status of remote Aboriginal communities, poor health outcomes persist and the provision of sustainable, appropriate health-care services to small isolated communities is challenging. The authors sought to describe the reorientation of a remote primary health-care service, in the Kimberley region of Australia, its impact on access to services and the factors instrumental in bringing about sustainable change in health-care provision. This case study highlights what is possible and necessary to deliver appropriate and accessible primary health care in communities seeking to align services with local needs.
