Indigenous Wellness Indicators

A collaboration of the CIHR Institute of Aboriginal Peoples’ Health, the First Nations Health Authority of British Columbia and the International Group on Indigenous Health Measurement

Comprehensive, practical and culturally appropriate indicators are needed to gain an accurate and wholistic picture of the health and wellness of Indigenous populations. If researchers and health service providers are to aid and support Indigenous peoples in their journey towards healing and wellness, these indicators must be integrated across the continuum of health policy and program development, implementation and evaluation. On 3 October 2014, experts from several countries were brought together to share their knowledge and unique insights with respect to Indigenous Wellness.

This document is a synthesis of nine Indigenous presentations from the Wellness Indicators Day.
