2013 CRANAplus Election Platform
CRANAplus has identified a number of issues that are important to their members and the remote health clients they serve.
All of the issues outlined have a basis in access and equity of health care and have a significant impact on the lives of people who live and work in the remote and very remote sectors of Australia.
We call on all candidates and political parties to consider the health and well being of remote Australians including those with the worst health outcomes in the Nation. These are often the forgotten Australians and deserve what other Australians take for granted.
Our three priority issues are of importance and all have an impact on the ‘closing the gap’ strategy for Indigenous Australians.
It is vital that they too have access to well trained, well supported health professionals and the best possible care we can give them.
