SARRAH is nationally recognised as the peak body representing rural and remote allied health professionals (AHPs) working in the public, private and community sectors. SARRAH exists to support equitable and sustainable health and well-being across regional, rural and remote Australia.
SARRAH develops and provides services for AHPs to carry out their professional duties confidently and competently and to provide a range of clinical and health education services to people who reside in these settings.
SARRAH’s representation comes from a wide range of tertiary qualified allied health professions (AHPs) who apply their skills in preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases, health conditions, illnesses and injuries.
AHPs are critical to patient centred and enabling health care, in the management of clients’ health needs, including in relation to chronic disease and complex care needs.
SARRAH maintains that every Australian should have access to equitable health services wherever they live and that allied health professional services are fundamental to the well-being of all Australians.
