In 2017, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) agreed to work on a refreshed Closing the Gap agenda. Following this, in December 2018, COAG agreed to a Joint Partnership with the Coalition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peak Organisations, and commenced a new consultation process.
The RACGP is using this opportunity to reinforce its earlier position on the direction of the Closing the Gap Strategy, and to voice our support for continued leadership from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peak organisations.
Our original submission to the Closing the Gap Refresh is here.
