Today marks National Close The Gap Day 🖤💛❤️
A day that highlights the fact that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are still dying more than 10 years younger than other Australians.
A day which calls to reduce disadvantage among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through improving health, employment and education outcomes.
A day which reminds us that we need allyship and action to overcome the inequality experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
A day to educate ourselves on this injustice and to use our voices to raise awareness in order to achieve health equality for all Australians.
