First Nations-led solutions

Last edited: December 12, 2023

The annual Close the Gap Campaign Report highlights the many success stories from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led programs, services and initiatives working to close the gap. 

The global COVID-19 pandemic presented unprecedented health challenges for all Australians, however throughout, First Nations people have led the way in transforming health and community services, policies, and programs, by rebuilding them with the foundations of culture and Country at the centre. 

These community-led solutions respond effectively to current and future needs in a robust and holistic way, using cultural knowledge and practices to restore the wellbeing of their communities.  

The 2022 Close the Gap Campaign Report features nine case studies that demonstrate the essential role of Aboriginal and Torres Islander led decision-making and self-determination.  Each one is an exemplar of cultural strength, which lifts expectations of what can be achieved for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing through innovative, culturally safe, community driven solutions.
