National Close the Gap Day

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples die 10-17 years younger than other Australians and it’s even worse in some parts of Australia. 

Last year, more than 150,000 people took part in 1596 separate National Close the Gap Day events across the country.

The aim? To bring people together, to share information — and most importantly — to take meaningful action in support of achieving Indigenous health equality by 2030.

With events ranging from workplace morning teas, to sports days, school events and public events in hospitals and offices around the country — anyone can take part and make a difference.

Your actions can create lasting change. Be part of the generation who closes the gap. Find out more here.
