2010 - 2012 IPHRC Report
Leading the Way in Indigenous Health Research
Since its inception in 2002, the Indigenous Peoples’ Health Research Centre (IPHRC) has strived to promote and achieve excellence in Indigenous health research in the province of Saskatchewan and beyond. Leading the Way in Indigenous Health Research - The Indigenous Peoples' Health Research Centre's 2010 - 2012 Report, celebrates these achievements, and our continued commitment to advancing Indigenous health research and improving the health of Indigenous people. We are proud to share our most recent successes with our readers and our community.
Designing and creating this report has provided us a unique opportunity to look back at the impressive work by our network of skilled researchers and community teams, and to celebrate the successes of our students, community members, and faculty along the way. It also demonstrates the ways in which we can continue in our goals to promote and nurture capacity for community generated health research among Indigenous peoples, communities, and institutions.
IPHRC is a collaborative network working to improve and strengthen the quality of Indigenous health research and the health of Indigenous people. In partnership with Indigenous communities, we are committed to transformative research that applies Indigenous knowledge and practices. This report is only one milestone in what we hope will be a long and bright future in Indigenous health research in this province and the country.
We hope you enjoy the report, and the stories within.
