The Roadmap to close the gap for vision - full report was produced by the Indigenous Eye Health Unit at the University of Melbourne. This detailed report describes the research project Roadmap to close the gap for vision project, with an explanation of the findings and consultation process that led to the recommendations.

The overall aim of this review of health services provisions, was to develop a model of eye care for Indigenous Australians for presentation to the Australian Government. Forty-two recommendations across nine domains of activity are presented as a comprehensive package of policy reforms with the goal to 'close the gap for vision'. The nine domains present a broad outline of the recommendations:

  1. primary eye care as part of comprehensive primary health care
  2. Indigenous access to eye health services
  3. coordination
  4. eye health workforce
  5. elimination of trachoma
  6. monitoring and evaluation
  7. governance
  8. health promotion and awareness
  9. health financing.
