Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander National Close the Gap Day
March 24, 2019
24th March – National Close the Gap Day
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are still dying 10 to 17 years younger than other Australians. For that reason, more than 40 national organisations came together in 2006 to form Close the Gap ‐ Australia’s largest ever campaign to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Close the Gap day is an opportunity for organisations and community to hold events and raise awareness of the Indigenous health crisis.
