Equal access to healthcare is a basic human right. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can expect to live up to 10 – 17 years less than non-Indigenous Australians.
Today, March 20 2014 is Oxfam’s National Close the Gap Day, the day aims to support Indigenous health equality by generating conversation and creating awareness about the importance of this critical issue.
Help to make this year even bigger and show your support by hosting a small event such as a morning or afternoon tea in your community, at home or in your workplace. This can be an opportunity to discuss our country’s health inequality issue with family, friends and colleagues and with support we can aim to close the health gap in Australia.
