International Urban Indigenous Health Conference 2019

vnhs ihc trees sky

Join us in this opportunity to collaborate in shaping the future of urban Indigenous healthcare.

The scope of Indigenous rights has increased while support for their realization is decreasing. Contemporary medical systems are failing Indigenous peoples of the world; our people are suffering and dying. The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples provides the foundation for Indigenous people to change the framework of the health care system and the nature of health service delivery. This conference is our opportunity for the creation of an Indigenous solution to the health crisis facing our people.

Stay tuned for the pending announcement of our speakers and more event details!

We would love to hear your thoughts on this event: send us your ideas, perspectives and suggestions (or questions) at our Facebook page.
