"The BC Rural Health Network (BCRHN) consists of healthcare advocacy organizations working in cooperation with healthcare policymakers. The purpose of the Network is to promote and support a health services system that improves and sustains the health and well-being of residents of rural communities across British Columbia.

Our goals include the following:

  • to share successful strategies in an effort to address rural healthcare concerns

  • to advocate for policy changes that provide all rural residents with attachment to a health care practitioner

  • to identify areas of research aimed at improving access to healthcare in rural communities and to provide fertile ground for research to take place

  • to inform the BC Ministry of Health of rural healthcare concerns

  • to recommend solutions for the improvement of services to rural BC residents

  • to work in partnership with other provincial organizations to influence policy changes that improve access to healthcare services

  • to recognize the healthcare concerns of indigenous communities and include their issues and concerns as part of our work

  • to improve access to mental health services

  • to promote patient-centred, community-based primary healthcare reform

Membership is open to any organization or individual that supports the purpose and goals of the BCRHN." (Retrieved from https://bcrhn.ca)
