Since it's inception in 2002, the AK-NEAHR has funded more than 30 Masters and PhD students and invested over $10 million in successful research grants.
all-Aboriginal advisory board reviews all research proposals and
decides on funding, with technical input from CIET and its academic
partners. The board is made up of the five national Aboriginal organizations: Assembly of First Nations (AFN), Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP), Métis National Council (MNC), Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) and Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC).
Our network features research linking modern science and Aboriginal knowledge, with a focus on community-based resilience and primary prevention of HIV/AIDS, gender and domestic violence, and diabetes and related conditions.
We put a strong emphasis on cultural safety, community leadership, and capacity building for research and planning. Knowledge translation and exchange with communities, policy makers and health services is a key component of all AK-funded projects.
