The Global Financial Crisis, Climate Change and Rural Child Health: Where to for Rural Health Policy? (pp. 521-533) $45.00
Authors:  Erica Bell
Much evidence exists to suggest that health is strongly
influenced by socio-economic factors, but also climate
change. This policy discussion paper aims to explore the
interacting effects of the global financial crisis (GFC) and
climate change on the health of children in rural Australia.
Strong evidence is emerging that the GFC will continue to
have major economic effects in rural Australia. These
economic effects will in turn impact on vulnerable groups
such as rural children. Indigenous children may be
particularly affected, but the GFC may also interact with
climate change to create new groups of disadvantage
amoung rural children. Prevention programs are at risk as is
the viability of many non government organisations
working to achieve better health for rural children.
Declining rural neighbourhoods may also affect health, as
will changing patterns of healthcare utilisation. The
conclusions emphasise five key directions for the rural
health sector: 1) helping ensure that there is support for
local community responses including through local
councils; 2) ensuring that the three pillars of the
government’s policy response to the GFC (infrastructure,
education and business development) do not create silos
that exclude health, a task requiring the rural health sector
to be visible at economic reform discussions and in
economic policy development; 3) insisting on reform of
Australia’s scant health service research agenda; 4)
however uncomfortable, questioning the values that have
led to unhealthy outcomes for rural communities and 5)
developing an explicit rural health policy with sentinel
indicators agreed on at state and federal levels.
