To close the gap in a generation, Indigenous health equality needs to be on top of the political agenda. By taking the 30 for 2030 challenge you’ll be joining thousands of others to remind the government of their commitments to Indigenous health. The 30 for 2030 challenge is unique to the 2014 Close the Gap campaign. By collecting 30 names and pledges, you’ll encourage others to show their support, and most importantly, involve them in the race to close the gap by 2030. The more pledges, means the more people, and to close the gap – we need an enormous amount of support from the Australian public. Keeping Indigenous health equality at the top of the political agenda is vital if we want to close the life expectancy gap by 2030. So, what are we asking the government to do?
