This week, the Productivity Commission released new data looking at the progress towards Closing the Gap on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.

The peak body for the well-being and development of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children says the results are alarming but not surprising.

It revealed preschool enrolment targets for young children have been met, but fewer children are meeting early development goals.

Speaking with NIRS News, SNAICC CEO Catherine Liddle says radical reform in early childhood is urgently needed.
