Abstract

Capacity building to increase health gains in defined populations is not a new concept. Nevertheless, as interpreted by Penny Hawe and her colleagues, and as developed operationally by the NSW Department of Health, enhancing regional capacity to deal more effectively with the health needs and demands of people living in rural and remote Australia offers real promise as a useful approach for improvement.
