National Close the Gap Day

Thursday March 21 2013 3:36 AM - 2:36 AM
Where:, NSW

National Close the Gap day, on 21 March 2013, is a way for all Australians to join together and remind political leaders of their commitments to close the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians within a generation.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples still live up to 20 years less than other Australians. Since 2006, the Close the Gap campaign has taken advantage of immense community support to generate awareness about this issue, calling on governments to take action and achieve Indigenous health equality within 25 years.

Become a part of the campaign and register your own National Close the Gap day event with Oxfam to help raise awareness in your own community.
