RANZCO acknowledges the continued leadership of the Coalition of Peaks in the formation of the new Closing the Gap partnership. The new targets have arisen through Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership and extensive consultation with communities across Australia. For the first time, there will be targets focused on reducing incarceration rates, improving housing quality and tackling the unacceptably high suicide rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. RANZCO congratulates the Coalition of Peaks on the dedication and leadership shown to reach this agreement. We look forward to supporting the new closing the gap partnership through our collaborations with government and the health sector to improve eye health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
