At the Anisnabe Kekendazone (original knowledge) Network Environment for Aboriginal Health Research (AK-NEAHR), we aim to build capacity for health research and planning in Aboriginal communities across Canada. We do this by supporting Aboriginal health researchers through fellowships and seed grants at masters, doctoral and post-doctoral levels, and by encouraging strong community leadership and participation in all research initiatives. We also encourage international health collaborations relevant to the well-being of Aboriginal communities and attuned to their worldview.
Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research-Institute of Aboriginal People’s Health, nine NEAHR centres form a national network that helps to increase the impact of Aboriginal health research in Canada. CIETcanada, partnered with 52 researchers from the Universities of Ottawa, Montréal, McGill, Carleton, Queen's and Alberta, and from several Aboriginal organizations across Canada, runs the AK NEAHR until 2012.
