The eighth Closing the Gap Report, tabled by Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull in Parliament this week outlines the progress being made to address the disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians in the priority areas of health, education and employment.

Although the Report shows that progress against the seven Closing the Gap targets has been mixed, longer term gains provide hope for the future. The Report acknowledges achievements across governments and communities and demonstrates that the partnerships between government, businesses, communities and individuals are yielding results.

The Report highlights progress against each of the seven targets and identifies areas for future focus. To read the full report and watch videos from our Ministers and from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities visit
