Close The Gap

Since the first Australian Government report in 2009, the Campaign Steering Committee has provided an annual complementary ‘shadow’ report representing its assessment of progress, including against the COAG Closing the Gap Targets for health and life expectancy equality, and the commitments in the Close the Gap Statement of Intent. This is done in the spirit of an open and constructive dialogue between government, the wider community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This progress report is this year’s contribution to this ongoing dialogue. Read the report from the Australian Human Rights Commission website here.

This report is a collaborative effort of the Close the Gap Campaign Steering Committee. Funding for, and project management of, the report was provided by Oxfam Australia.
