The International Network in Indigenous Health Knowledge and Development (INIHKD) in partnership with Manitoba Network Environment for Aboriginal Health Research (NEAHR) are proud to host the upcoming International Indigenous Health Conference in 2014. This conference builds on the INIKHD’s international gathering held every two years that is dedicated to improving the lives of Indigenous peoples globally through Indigenous and community-led research, health services and workforce development. This year’s conference will include a focus on Indigenous health research in true collaboration, and mentoring new investigators and graduate students.
In October, 2014 this gathering will be taking place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. An estimated 600 people including health service providers, Indigenous community members, researchers, and policy formulator attendees will share in the showcasing and honouring of Indigenous-led knowledge development in research, education & training, and health service models.
The INIHKD creates a place for collaboration and the exchange of ideas, models and experiences in the following areas: 1) Education, Training and Workforce; 2) Health Services; and 3) Research Activities.
