    Over 15 years

    The NCCIH proudly celebrates 15 years of knowledge sharing about Indigenous peoples’ and public health in Canada. Over the past 15 years we have held fast to our goal of supporting respectful and meaningful research, policy and practice to advance the optimal health and well-being of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

    Social Determinants

    Emerging through international discussions dating back to 1986, determinants of health have evolved over time to encompass the broader social forces that impact upon health. Poverty, employment, education, housing, access to health services, food security, early child development, gender, culture, and language are some of the complex and inter-related social determinants of health.

    Child, Youth, Family

    The NCCIH recognizes that rebuilding Indigenous health and well-being starts with children and extends to youth, adults, parents, grandparents, families, and communities. Just as our knowledge resources explore First Nations, Inuit and Métis women’s journeys into motherhood, we also document the significant role fathers and grandparents play in child rearing and the transmission of culture and language.
