Earlier this year the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet released the Closing the Gap Prime Minister’s Report 2018 which outlines the progress made toward the seven closing the gap targets. The target to halve the gap in mortality rates for Indigenous children under five within a decade (by 2018) is on track, as is the target to have 95 per cent of all Indigenous four-year-olds enrolled in early childhood education by 2025. The expansion of the Australian-Nurse Family Partnership Program is referenced in this report.

The Commonwealth of Australia, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Closing the Gap Prime Minister’s Report 2018 is available on the Closing the Gap website.
