Vision 2020 Australia Submission to the Closing the Gap Refresh Discussion Paper

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience greater health disadvantage than non-Indigenous people. Investment in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health does not match greater health needs.
 
There is a strong relationship between health outcomes and living and working conditions. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, health outcomes are negatively impacted by differences in social determinants.
 
Vision 2020 Australia’s submission was informed by our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health policy committee. The Committee is made up of representatives providing health services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and professional peaks, policy experts and academics.
 

Our members call on the government to recommit to the Close the Gap Statement of Intent and undertake a process of true consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to co-design the refreshed Closing the Gap strategy.
