Many rural and remote communities have no women’s health services. Clients who need specialist consultations are forced to travel far to see an expert. This is especially difficult as problems can be complex and may need subsequent treatment or follow up. Distance is often quoted as the reason why rural women delay seeking care.

From Charleville to the Coolabah Tree, True’s friendly female clinicians bring expert reproductive and sexual health services to the outback

Provide accessibility and choice

In 2016, True made a commitment to bring expert reproductive and sexual health services to people living in regional Queensland. Our aim was to develop a sustainable women’s health service to ensure preventative care was within reach of every community.

We were determined to find a way for True’s friendly female clinicians to regularly visit the outback.

Rural communities take up True’s service

We now provide a comprehensive range of services to clients living in rural and remote locations, including:

  • Antenatal care

  • Complex contraception options and advice
  • IUD assessment, insertion and removal

  • Menopause advice

The program is funded by the Federal Government and managed by CheckUP.
