The Challenge – reimagining regional and remote health care

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

We challenged you to reimagine what it means to deliver regional and remote health care, and 10 finalists have progressed to the proof-of-concept stage.

Follow their stories as they work to plan, develop and implement their solutions in the Pilbara.

The Government of Western Australia 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.

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