Demography, technology, inflation and rising expectations have created strong pressures to reform health care even in nations where the health care system is seen to offer accessible, high quality care and controlled spending. A key focus of reform in countries with substantial low density rural populations has been the effort to ensure that rural residents receive the same standard of care as their urban counterparts, despite the challenges associated with delivering accessible, high quality care in a cost effective manner. Using qualitative research methods, this study examines solutions to rural and remote health care problems, contrasting the views of rural and urban residents about three health care reforms in a policy making context dominated by conflicting priorities and limited resources.
