Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples die 10-17 years younger than other Australians and it's even worse in some parts of Australia. Register now and hold an activity of your choice in support of health equality across Australia.

Resources

Resource packs will be sent out from 1 February 2017.

We will also have a range of free downloadable resources available on our website www.oxfam.org.au/closethegapday. It is still important to register as this contributes to the overall success of the event.

No matter what your activity – register now

No matter how big or small your activity, yours will play an important role in building local support for ending the Indigenous health crisis. At a national level, registering your activity shows the broad ongoing community support for action to Close the Gap by 2030.

Remind governments of their responsibility to achieve health equality for all Australians. Your activity can be any size or shape you like.

What's most important is that you take part by registering now.

Hosting an activity is really easy (and fun!)
