Abstract

Australia's population is highly and increasingly urban. In 2017, just over 70% of residents were living in major cities (ie, Australian Statistical Geography Standard [ASGS]-Remoteness Area [RA] 1). At the same time, Australians living in inner-regional, outer-regional, remote and very remote areas tend to be older than their urban counterparts1 and experience poorer health outcomes which increase with remoteness. These health inequities have been linked to disparate access to health professionals in rural, remote and regional areas in comparison with major cities.
