An Aboriginal perspective on 'Closing the Gap' from the rural front line

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

A recent rural community gathering, designed to bring together rural Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members and leaders, was held and provided an important forum for Aboriginal people to share perspectives about Australia's aspirations to 'Close the Gap'1 between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. The aim of this report is to disseminate the sentiment that percolated in the presentations and discussion arising from the gathering. This report demonstrates how rural Close the Gap champions can influence the uptake of healthy choices in their communities, at the front line of change.
