Close the Gap Report Launch

Each year the Close the Campaign co-chairs release a report on the efforts being done and the effectiveness of the government strategies in closing the gap.

This year the Close the Gap Campaign will partner with Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation - Aboriginal Medical Service, South Western Sydney, to host an exciting community event and launch our Annual Report.

 Take Heart for National Close The Gap Day

Do you want to help us raise awareness of the high levels of Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) in many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities? Do you want to educate your community about what is RHD?

RHD was eliminated in most parts of Australia in the 1960s, yet every week two young Australians die from RHD. This disease exemplifies the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. 

Join us, by hosting a screening for National Close the Gap Day of multi-award winning ‘Take Heart narrated by Stan Grant’ in your community! No matter the size of the event, whether public or private, we can all contribute to make a change!

Send an email to [email protected] to get everything you need to organize the event!
