Indigenous health research
Building a healthier future for First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples

Health research can help reduce health inequities that currently exist between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples in Canada. Indigenous Peoples and communities can share their traditions and Ways of Knowing with researchers, through:

  • Indigenous approaches in study designs;
  • implementation and evaluation of policies and interventions;
  • scale-up of effective approaches; and
  • coordinated efforts of health and non-health partners in remote, rural and urban communities.

Led by its Institute of Aboriginal Peoples' Health, the health and wellness of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples is one of the four priority areas in CIHR’s latest strategic plan, Roadmap II and is a priority for all 13 institutes.
