The Outback Alliance members and key stakeholders from diverse sectors discuss issues and challenges that have been identified following the first outbreak of COVID-19:

  • How has Covid-19 hit the Outback? What happens now?
  • What are the differences in service delivery between urban Australia and Outback Australia?
  • What policy change is necessary to ensure Outback communities are supported to thrive?
  • What can we learn from the Outback and remote communities?
  • Shared themes, opportunities and lessons emerge as the series progresses, enabling deeper cross-sectoral understanding, and identification of future Outback-appropriate policy development.
