Membership is open to organisations which are autonomous national rural health bodies; or rural sub-groups of national health bodies or national bodies and/or sub-groups which can demonstrate a significant interest in rural health.

There is also the option of Associate Membership for organisations that do not meet the criteria of ordinary membership but have an interest in health issues in rural New Zealand.

Individuals interested in rural health issues can join via a Friends Membership. The purpose of our Friends is to support RHAANZ by building grassroots connections for the Alliance’s policy, information and advocacy work.
