Zoe/ Senior Advisor, Honorable Minister of Health Jane Philpott, Henry Zoe/ Acting TEO and Anita Daniels/ Director of Social Programs met in prior to today’s announcement of an important collaboration in research to improve patient care and Indigenous Peoples’ health outcomes in the Northwest territories.

“The Tłı̨chǫ Government is very pleased to host this important NWT research project funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. I think it is a great opportunity to work together with other partners to encourage a better understanding of the importance of culture and community in the delivery of our health care. We look forward to being part of this work to improve the relevance of northern health care research by focusing on patients in the remotest northern communities. We are also pleased to be part of a project that fosters partnerships between indigenous governments and public governments, and a partnership which we believe is going to improve health care outcomes for our people.”
