Rural health outreach fund

 

Overview

The Rural health outreach fund (RHOF) is funded by the Department of Health and administered by state-based organisations. The fund aims to improve health outcomes for people living in regional, rural and remote locations by supporting the delivery of outreach health activities.

By providing both public and private outreach health services that address prioritised community needs, RHOF aims to broaden the range and choice of health services available while reducing the financial disincentives that may result in a barrier to service delivery. Funding is available to service providers to support the cost of providing outreach services.

The RHOF consolidates five existing outreach programs:
