2024 National Closing The Gap Indigenous Health
The conference is hosted by Indigenous Conference Services with a great line up of First Nations speakers from all throughout Australia. The event is based upon the principal belief that Indigenous health must be approached from a holistic view, which encompasses body, mind and spirit; thus, leading to the fundamental rights of self-determination. The conference recognises that treating our health must be done by treating the whole person, through mind, body, soul and culture. No matter what your culture is, if you're a First Nations person, statistics show that health, education and the justice system is monstrously weighted against First Nations People.
