This major national partnership will support the delivery of essential healthcare services to rural and remote communities across Australia, through significant financial support and the provision of a fleet of Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X vehicles.

The Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X vehicles will be used to tow the RFDS training and educational simulators around the country, visiting rural and remote communities, schools and field days.
