This review assesses the 2008 Council of Australian Governments Closing the Gap Strategy with its target to achieve life expectancy (health) equality by 2030. Ten-years after its commencement, this review assesses why Australian governments have not yet succeeded in closing the health gap to date, and why they will not succeed by 2030 if the current course continues. The review reports on five major findings and includes recommendations for going forward.
