OUR CHOICES OUR VOICES

A report prepared by the Lowitja Institute for the Close the Gap Steering Committee. Following on from the 10-year review in 2018, the 2019 report identifies urgent prioritie themes of the Close the Gap Campaign such as: • Targeted, needs-based primary health care • Responsive health care system • Good housing for good health. The success stories highlighted in this report demonstrate that when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are involved in the design of the services they need, we are far more likely to achieve success.

ACHIEVING INDIGENOUS HEALTH EQUALITY THROUGH THE CLOSE THE GAP CAMPAIGN

The Close the Gap Campaign has released its 2019 priorities for the next government of Australia. The proposed policy agenda will, if fully funded and implemented, provide a pathway forward for an incoming government to achieve tangible improvements in life expectancy and other key health indicators.

We invite members of the public, schools and organisations to support the Close the gap campaign and or donate.
