Pledge to Close the Health Equality Gap

Join us in demanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health equality within a generation.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples still live, on average, 10-11 years less than non-Indigenous Australians.

Closing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander life expectancy gap is everyone's business: it is a national issue in which every individual, organisation and group in Australia can play a role.

To achieve health equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians within 25 years I call on the Australian Government to:

  1. Commit to providing adequate and long-term financial resources to achieve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health equality;
  2. Invest in real partnerships, including increased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation and control around health service delivery; and 
  3. Address critical social issues of housing, education and self-determination that contribute to the health crisis affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
