Australians are being encouraged to join the movement for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health equality, and celebrate this year's National Close the Gap Day, organised by Oxfam Australia, on Thursday 16 March.
The day aims to bring people together to share information and, most importantly, to take meaningful action in support of achieving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health equality by 2030.
Last year, more than 150,000 people took part in 1,596 separate National Close the Gap Day events across the country, ranging from morning teas, to sports days, school events and public events. Oxfam Australia is encouraging more people to get involved this year, and to register their event online, no matter how big or how small. This year, more than 900 events have already been registered.
