Join us in demanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health equality within a generation.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples still live, on average, 10-11 years less than non-Indigenous Australians.

Closing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander life expectancy gap is everyone’s business: it is a national issue in which every individual, organisation and group in Australia can play a role.

To achieve health equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians within 25 years I call on the Australian Government to:

  1. Commit to providing adequate and long-term financial resources to achieve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health equality;
  2. Invest in real partnerships, including increased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation and control around health service delivery; and 
  3. Address critical social issues of housing, education and self-determination that contribute to the health crisis affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
  4.  

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