National Close the Gap Day
We are excited to announce that National Close the Gap Day has a new host and a new home. ANTaR, our partner in the Close the Gap campaign will be running NCTGD from January 2019.
Oxfam has had the privilege of running National Close the Gap Day on behalf of the broader CTG coalition for the last ten years. In that time we have seen this event grow to become the biggest Indigenous health event on the calendar. It has mobilised hundreds of thousands of people across every corner of Australia to increase their awareness and take action for health equality.
We are excited to now be working with our campaign partner ANTaR to hand over the reins of this great event to them. Like Oxfam, ANTaR are passionate advocates for the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.

Oxfam is a founding member of the Close the Gap campaign and will continue to actively campaign for community led solutions to the terrible gap in health and life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and other Australians.
