The AK-NEAHR focuses on Aboriginal health issues of national relevance, emphasizing primary prevention (building individual and community well-being and reducing the risk of health threats), evaluation of interventions, and translation of research findings for use by communities, policy makers and health services.
An 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).
The AK-NEAHR is no longer accepting funding applications for 2012. For information on how to apply to future funding, follow the links below.
