Summary This paper reports findings from a study in two small Tasmanian rural communities that examined the process of developing and sustaining partnerships between health services and their communities. It identifies a generic framework for partnership development that appears to be common to partnerships, regardless of their purpose or of partners involved. The framework comprises ten predictors or indicators of effectiveness, and a sequential nine-stage partnership development process. Integral to the framework are social capital, and the leadership practices of health service and community leaders. The influence of context on the partnership development process is also examined, with reference to historical precedent, age or maturity of the partnership, and community readiness.
