Pharmacy Accessibility in Australia

PhARIA map

Pharmacy Accessibility/Remoteness Index of Australia (PhARIA) (Commonwealth Dept. of Health). The PhARIA was designed (in partnership with the Dept. of Health and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia) to provide a comprehensive, standardised measurement of the physical and professional remoteness of pharmacies throughout Australia, for use in the determination of rural and remote pharmacy allowances.

PhARIA is a composite index, which incorporates measurements of general remoteness, as represented by ARIA, with a professional isolation component represented by the road distance to the five (5) closest pharmacies.

More information and PhARIA values (by populated locality) are available from the PhARIA page.
