Abstract: AIM: To improve access to and choice of services, reduce inequalities and enhance the quality of dialysis and transplantation services available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians residing in remote and rural areas. Remote area renal services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians were identified as an important area for reform by clinicians, bureaucrats and non-government representatives in the Health Reform Agenda discussions in 2002 associated with the renewal of the Australian Health Care Agreements. This issue was subsequently included as one of the items in the National Health Reform Agenda. The national importance of this work, with its specific focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people requiring remote area renal services continues to be recognised.
