National Close the Gap day

The Close the Gap campaign aims to close the health and life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians within a generation.  AIPA wish to draw attention to the success stories in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.

AIPA welcomes the latest Closing the Gap report: "Our Choices, Our Voices."  https://www.humanrights.gov.au/our-work/aboriginal-and-torres-strait-islander-social-justice/publications/close-gap-report-our

AIPA thank the many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and organisations who are working everyday towards improving health and wellbeing outcomes for all.
