National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health
The National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) is making significant strides in support of a renewed public health system that is inclusive and respectful of diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. NCCAH's collaborations in knowledge sharing extend beyond traditional boundaries — institutional, jurisdictional, geographical and professional — to address the multi-faceted and structural issues underpinning Aboriginal health. They continue to strengthen the links between evidence, knowledge, practice and policy in support of the public health goals of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
Established in 2005 by the Government of Canada, and funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada, the NCCAH is one of six centres in the National Collaborating Centres for Public Health program, each focusing on a different aspect of public health. Together, the centres help improve response to chronic disease and injury, infectious diseases, environmental health and health disparities.
