Bishops Address: Relevance Resilience Resolve

Rob Curry and Robyn Adams

Drawing on reflections of long standing SARRAH members we will present perspectives on the raison d’ệtre of SARRAH, the achievements and the challenges since its formation in 1995. Our past and present leaders have articulated their reasons for first joining SARRAH. Collectively their views provide a useful touchstone for considering ongoing relevance to issues and challenges in 2016 and beyond. As a self-described grass roots organisation, member perspectives and activity are fundamental. We will draw upon conversations on resilience to provide a context for active engagement and developing creative responses to current and emerging opportunities. Often considered an intractable problem, improving health and access to health services in rural and remote areas takes resolve.
Are we up to it?
