A report has unveiled recently that the Rural Health Education Foundation has released a new television health channel with an aim to aid in the closure of the health gap realized between Australia's urban and rural areas.
The launch has been declared yesterday in a Canberra meeting wherein Professor Sabina Knight had also joined along with federal ministers Warren Snowdon, Tanya Plibersek and Stephen Conroy. Knight, director of the Rural and Remote Health's Mount Isa Centre, has been chosen as a member of the board of the foundation.
Though, the foundation has been continuing to provide varied distance learning education programs since past 20 years to health professionals, almost 50,000 in number.
According to the findings, the new move has been made in order to bring a change in the existing health care services provided in regional, rural and remote Australian areas. Tanya Plibersek affirmed that the Gillard Government should make it a priority.
The channel would be providing proper information and education on health to people in all those areas that lag behind in access to medical facilities. "Improving access to information on healthy lifestyles and reducing risks factors will make a significant difference in local communities", said Ms. Plibersek.
