What is Close the Gap?
Closing the Gap acknowledges the ongoing strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in sustaining the world’s oldest living cultures.*
The campaign aims to work together to close the health and life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians, and is built on evidence that shows significant improvements in the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples can be achieved by 2030.
