Outcomes to date:
Four evaluation reports are now available for the ‘evaluating regional implementation of the Roadmap to Close the Gap for Vision’ project.
The project commenced in 2019 and these reports were prepared using data collected through: a national survey of stakeholders working in the sector; focus groups and individual interviews in regional case study areas; and a scoping review of publicly available literature. The reports can be accessed here:
