Close the Gap

Thursday 21st March / presented by Daniel Cleary

The health of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders remains far below that of non-Indigenous people.

The Campaign for Indigenous Health Equality Close the Gap is in its 8th year and strives to create positive outcomes.

It aims to give Indigenous people the same opportunity to live a long healthy and happy life by 2030.

It’s an issue for all ages but Aboriginal babies die at twice the rate of other Australian babies. They experience higher rates of preventable illness such as diabetes, heart disease and kidney disease.

Daniel Cleary spoke with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner Mick Gooda on these issues.
