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

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

On National Close the Gap Day we encourage you to get involved and host an activity in your workplace, home, community or school.

Our aim is to bring people together to share information, and most importantly, to take meaningful action in support of achieving health equality for First Nations Peoples.

How to get involved in National Close the Gap Day

With events ranging from workplace morning teas, sports activities, school events and public events around the country — tens of thousands of people take part each year to make a difference.

Your actions can create lasting change. Be part of the generation that closes the gap.
