Everyone deserves the right to a healthy future and the opportunities this affords.
However, many of Australia’s First Peoples are denied the same access to healthcare that non-Indigenous Australians take for granted.
National Close the Gap Day is a national day of action to pledge support for achieving Indigenous health equality by 2030.
The Close the Gap campaign is the result of the Australian public’s overwhelming support for improving health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The campaign is led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and supported by mainstream health and advocacy organisations from around the country, it is coordinated by ANTaR.
