"Creating systemic change in Indigenous health services"
Vancouver Native Health Society is hosting the first National Indigenous Health Conference in Vancouver, BC. Indigenous people around the world are experiencing poorer health-outcomes than non-Indigenous people, and face similar challenges in providing and accessing quality healthcare. Non-Indigenous conventional approaches and the current mainstream healthcare systems have proven unable to meet the health needs of Indigenous peoples. Health equity can only be realized through services that are .. continue reading adequately funded and culturally founded. To have an effective healthcare system in place Indigenous people must come together to create a collective vision of what Indigenous healthcare should look like and establish a national strategy for its realization. This conference is a ground-breaking opportunity to create an Indigenous-led movement. At the conference we will learn from one another and collaborate with a diverse group of people from all over the world.
- Keynote Speakers: Dr. Alika Lafontaine, Gertie Mai Muise, Dr. Marcia Anderson, and Rick Hansen.
