The National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) released a new review entitled: Ecohealth and Aboriginal Health: A Review of Common Ground. Authored by Margot Parkes (Canada Research Chair in Health, Ecosystems and Society at the University of Northern B.C.), the review explores the connection between people, place and land.
Parkes notes that building on the strengths of both Indigenous knowledge and ecohealth is “fertile ground that could help foster a future for Aboriginal communities where ecosystems, equity, health and culture can flourish.”
The review ncludes examples of how ecohealth approaches are being applied to improve health and well-being in Aboriginal communities in Canada and Indigenous communities internationally.
