The 2015 Closing the Gap Report has been released by the Prime Minister. It is the seventh report since targets were set by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2008. The report shows that although there has been some improvement in education and health outcomes for Indigenous Australians, most Closing the Gap targets are not on track to be met.
