A Joint Select Committee on Constitutional Recognition Relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples 2018 has been established to inquire into and report on matters relating to constitutional change, including consideration of the Uluru Statement from the Heart (the Uluru Statement), which was announced in May 2017.
The RACGP has supported constitutional change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for many years.
The RACGP supports the recommendations in the Uluru Statement. This position is consistent with the RACGP’s commitment to close the gap in health inequality, our membership of the Close the Gap Steering Committee and reflects our ongoing support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership and health.
