The Challenge – reimagining regional and remote health care

Better health care starts with an idea. But it doesn’t stop there.

We challenge you to reimagine what it means to deliver regional and remote health care.

The Government of Western Australia has issued a global challenge for a world-leading medical research and innovation solution to resolve a pressing problem of health service delivery in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Show us how you think outside the box.

The best solution will take home the $5 million prize supported by our partners, Rio Tinto, BHP and the Future Health Research and Innovation Fund.
