National Close the Gap Day
The New South Wales Regional Health Partners acknowledge that today is National Close the Gap day. March 15th is a reminder that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are dying 10 -17 years younger than other Australians. Today we will reflect on these statistics and consider how we can contribute towards closing the gap. More importantly today we will listen by attending a forum where Aboriginal people and health care professionals will share their knowledge.
NSW Regional Health Partners are proud to be involved in a national project led by Aboriginal and Torres Islander people. This project recognises the importance of providing appropriate health care services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, having appropriate health messaging and building the capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers.
