Updated Pharmacy Accessibility/Remoteness Index of Australia (PhARIA) values for the 2019/20 financial year, as calculated by the Hugo Centre for Migration and Population Research, are now available on the University of Adelaide website.
PhARIA is a composite index, which quantifies the degree of remoteness (both geographic and professional) of pharmacies for the purposes of administering the Rural Pharmacy Maintenance Allowance and other rural workforce programs funded under the 6th Community Pharmacy Agreement.
Please note that while every effort has been made to include suburbs, some will be listed under the major locality name. Therefore, if you cannot find the name of your suburb then you should search for the name of the city that suburb is a part of. As the PhARIA is standardised within metropolitan areas, the suburb will have the same PhARIA category.
