    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.

    Healthy Land, Healthy People

    The NCCIH acknowledges that there are diverse and emerging public health priorities for First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples living in urban, rural, remote and northern communities across Canada. Our centre aims to explore, develop, and share knowledge resources that best reflect these multiple and unique priorities as they arise in Indigenous health.
