Sustainability for Health

Rural and remote communities are at higher risk from adverse effects of climate change.  Climate change has the potential to further exacerbate many of the unique health challenges in rural and remote Australia. Extreme weather events and rising temperatures affect not only the physical and mental health of the community but also the health workforce and infrastructure that these communities rely on. Climate changes also poses risks for food and water security, which are vital for the health and wellbeing of everyone, but particularly the vulnerable in rural and remote communities in Australia.  RARMS is therefore committed to a sustainability agenda to reduce the impact of climate change on our communities and promote improved health and wellness.
