About the webinar:

The shared histories and experiences of colonization of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, New Zealand, Australia, and the Pacific Islands have created lasting legacies of historical trauma, intergenerational grief, and stark health and social inequities. These indigenous groups, although thousands of miles apart, colonized by different peoples, and operating under different health systems all exhibit similar poor health outcomes and gaps.

Indigenous sovereignty can be a key factor in facilitating more efficient means of communication and sharing best practices amongst Indigenous peoples with similar social, political and cultural conditions. This webinar will introduce the International Indigenous Health Collaborative, a new effort aiming to accelerate Indigenous health gains and eliminate health inequities for Indigenous Peoples. Through the creation of a formal and collaborative, the group will foster the active sharing of knowledge and innovative practices on Indigenous health, and create a funnel of information that can be used to bolster health systems, improve social determinants driving disparities, and reverse health inequities.

This webinar will speak to the burgeoning efforts to bring security and stability to this vision of international collaboration.
