Close the Gap for Vision by 2020 – National Conference 2018

The continuing effort throughout 2017 of all Indigenous eye health stakeholders has resulted in sixty seven percent of 138 activities outlined in the Roadmap to Close the Gap for Vision being completed and 16 of 42 recommendations fully implemented. Collectively, real progress is being made to improve Indigenous eye health outcomes across Australia but we must maintain the effort to reach parity by 2020.
The 2018 conference will showcase the progress in Close the Gap for Vision activities, illustrate and workshop solutions to overcome challenges and especially what can be achieved by striving together.

Who should attend?

The conference is designed for those working in all aspects of Indigenous eye care including Aboriginal health workers and eye care practitioners, and for those working in clinical, regional, jurisdictional and national organisations. It will include Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations, non-government organisations, funding and commissioning agencies, professional bodies and government departments.
