Wunan Supports National Close the Gap Day 22 March 2012 – working together to reduce the gap in Indigenous Health Equality
20 March 2012
Campaigning for Indigenous health equality – Power through partnership
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are still dying 10 to 17 years younger than other Australians. Government has recognised that the only way to close the gap in indigenous health equality within a generation is to work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
National Close the Gap Day (NCTGD) is a way for all Australians to join together and remind our political leaders of their commitments to close the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians within a generation. Our focus for 2012 is on the need for genuine, meaningful partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations at all stages of health planning and delivery.
