Research on the Health of Québec First Nations and Inuit: An Overview - 20 Years of Research at a Glance
Speaking to the First Nations of Québec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission's 2007-2017 Blueprint, this review provides valuable information to guide the development of research on First Nations and Inuit.
Between 2008 and 2009, both the First Nations of Québec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission (FNQLHSSC) and the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) worked together to achieve this report. It follows through with the commitment made by the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec (MSSS) to entrust the INSPQ with the support of experts allowing a strong increase in research ability within the FNQLHSSC.
The objective of this report is to provide relevant and valid information on the specific reality of Aboriginal health research, allowing us to determine strategic development priorities to influence and improve the health of Québec First Nations and Inuit.
