@JCU Close the Gap Day - This Thursday (March 16)
This Thursday, March 16 is Close the Gap Day.
Closing the gap is a strategy that aims to reduce Indigenous disadvantage with respect to life expectancy, child mortality, access to early childhood education, educational achievement, and employment outcomes.
