CURVE LAKE FIRST NATION – The Anishinabek Nation’s Health Transformation Team has moved a step closer to exploring what needs to be done to improve Anishinabek health.
Chiefs-in-Assembly endorsed a resolution to direct the Anishinabek Nation Health Secretariat to prepare a business case to secure funding for the next level of engagement and explore the feasibility of an Anishinabek Health Authority to strengthen the engagement process by conducting community meetings for each of the 39 Anishinabek member First Nations, as well as regional meetings. This engagement also includes reaching out to tribal councils, health agencies, and other organizations that provide health services to Anishinabek First Nations citizens regardless of residence; and, to develop health governance models, with direction from the Chiefs Committee on Health, for consideration by the Chiefs-in-Assembly at the next Grand Council Assembly.
