Rural Health

In the large body of health literature and public debates about health and wellbeing, rural health has been largely neglected. The lack of political voice of rural voters, the logistical difficulties of providing health services to rural areas and the heterogeneity of rural communities have resulted in rural health not receiving adequate healthcare services, infrastructure and attention. Rural and remote contexts, both of which are diverse, shape what health consumers do, including their health behaviours, decisionmaking and access to care. It also alters how health professionals practice, who chooses to work there, and what services are provided. As Wakerman and Humphreys stated, rural health is more than health in another location
