2018 Closing the Gap Refresh

Submission on behalf of the END RHD Centre of Research Excellence and RHDAustralia. This document contains recommendations for the Closing the Gap Refresh that will retain a focus on health outcomes that matter to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) could provide a critical, tangible target for achieving gains in Indigenous life expectancy. RHD is the leading cause of cardiovascular inequality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
