The Rural Health Education Foundation has started a channel for remote communities in Canberra. The channel will show an array of programs, including experts' advice on health and updates on medical services and preventive measures to remain protected from number of diseases.
It will also include some topics like advice on nutrition, mental health and diet and safety tips while working at home.
The decision to telecast free-to-air channel through a digital satellite network was taken at the time when it was seen that such communities do not have any access to other media facilities, such as television and internet services.
It is not the first time that such an initiative has been taken by the foundation, as it has been providing an access to such facilities since 1992. Dr David Rosenthal, who is the foundation's chairman, was of the view that their main to provide such facilities is to make sure that people living in remote communities are able to get updated information on every topic related to health.
"So for those people to know that they're receiving up-to-date, evidence-based, well researched and well produced information that they can use tomorrow in their practice, that's invaluable", said Rosenthal.
