Close the Gap
Monday 26 March 2018
Failure to narrow the gap in life expectations for Indigenous Australians, with the latest reports showing reduced federal expenditure, a widening gap on life expectancy and six of seven key measures not ‘on track’ after 10 years of the national Close the Gap strategy are shameful.
More Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are reporting their heritage in the Census and there has been progress in education but basic markers like health need urgent action. Please support community campaigns for justice such as: HERE and HERE and HERE.
