Welcome to the inaugural Murray Health Report
Murray PHN is pleased to publish the first edition of its Murray Health Report, which looks at the health issues, challenges and opportunities for people in our region, which runs from the centre of Victoria and along the Murray River.
Published twice each year, the Murray Health Report provides statistics and insights and discusses the work that Murray PHN does to help improve health outcomes for people in our communities.
COVID-19 and bushfires have worsened mental health problems in our catchment, where we have higher rates of unemployment, lower socio-economic status and farming communities that experience drought, flood or fire on a regular basis. In pandemic times, our need for mental health support has never been greater.
