More than 150,000 Australians are expected to take part in Close the gap day activities all over the country. Close the gap Co-chairs Mick Gooda and Kirstie Parker said the expected 150,000 people across Australia participating in a record 1250 events on National Close the gap day showed the government they wanted continued investment in Closing the gap health programs.
'The fact that so many Australians are united in support of the Close the gap campaign today clearly demonstrates that this remains an issue of national importance. People expect action.' Ms Parker said.
Community groups, health services, businesses, schools, universities, government offices and individuals around Australia are holding or taking part in Close the gap events in homes, workplaces and communities.
