The Indigenous Peoples' Health Research Centre (IPHRC) is a partnership between the University of Regina, First Nations University of Canada and the University of Saskatchewan, with broad support from various health boards and Aboriginal health organizations. We are supported by the Institute of Aboriginal Peoples' Health (IAPH), an Institute of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
Funding provided to IPHRC is primarily focused on building capacity in health research among Aboriginal people, communities and institutions through trainee support, and promoting research into areas of Aboriginal health.
Indigenous identity, place and connectivity, and cultural/linguistic continuity, as they relate to health
Mental health and addictions
Complex interactions of factors
The principles that inform our research are community-based and interdisciplinary. Policy, knowledge translation and social determinants of health transcend all four focus areas and are a required aspect of all of our research.
