"Advancing and advocating for health in rural and urban communities."
February 18-21, 2020
The International Indigenous Women’s Health Meeting, held every two years, focuses on innovative clinical care models and community-based approaches to health for women and their families in First Nations, Inuit, Métis, American Indian and Alaska Native and other Indigenous communities. During the meeting, participants will further strengthen their knowledge about prevalent health problems facing Indigenous women and acquire practical skills. Opportunities to share knowledge and support one another’s efforts, to
network, and to develop partnerships are built into the program. Topics include: rural maternity safety, trauma-informed care, maternal substance use and cultural safety. Optional hands-on sessions are available for clinical skills building and safety planning.
- Employ enhanced systems of culturally-informed care to advance the health status of Indigenous women
- Examine strategies and unique solutions to meet the emerging health needs of women in Indigenous populations
- Implement evidence-informed practices that enhance the health care team’s clinical skills in providing quality women’s health and maternity care to Indigenous women
- Develop partnerships to increase collaboration and information exchange between those working in Indigenous women’s health in both rural and urban settings internationally
- Identify opportunities to improve capacity building and advocacy efforts in maternity and women’s health care

Tribal Health Research Agenda: Governance, Trust, and Culture
The primary goal of the annual NNHRT conference is to contribute toward the growth of a Native health research community that is dedicated to honoring tribal decision-making processes, building trust through tribal community participation and guided by tribal cultural knowledge and values. Ultimately, the aims of Native health programs are best achieved when Native decision-makers, researchers and community members are driving the research agenda, conducting the research, and sharing the outcomes with the tribal health stakeholder community.
We therefore encourage all NNHRT participants to consider, when sharing and discussing individual research projects and exploring ideas for future projects, how does this work promote and sustain tribal governance, community trust, and cultural values and understandings.
