National Close the Gap Day

For more than a decade now, Australians from every corner of the country, in schools, businesses and community groups, have shown their support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health equity by marking National Close the Gap Day on the third Thursday in March each year.

Every National Close the Gap Day, is an opportunity to send our governments a clear message that Australians value health equality as a fundamental right for all.

Today we see the launch of the 2024 Annual Report: Voyage to Voice, Treaty, Truth and Beyond. This report highlights through nine case studies, that show the work of outstanding organisations in our communities who have shared their journey and their successes to closing the gap.
