Abstract

Nearly 30% of Australians live in rural areas and are disadvantaged by factors such as socio-economic status, educational attainment, job opportunities, and access to health services and social support.1 People living in rural and remote areas also have higher rates of disability, illness, engagement in risky behaviours (such as alcohol and other drug consumption and smoking), hospitalisations and premature death than other Australians.1 The aim of this Supplement is to introduce the Spinifex Network as a leading national network supporting rural health and medical research and to showcase a few of the many rural health research priority areas.
