Saint Elizabeth views the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) as an exceptional model and leader in activating knowledge and resources in the area of health for First Nations, Inuit and Métis community members. In September 2011, a collaboration agreement was formed between both organizations with the intent to have a positive impact on the health and well-being of Aboriginal Peoples.
Before closing their doors on June 29, 2012, NAHO served as a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual health of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis individuals, families and communities. Their fundamental belief was to provide advancement, promotion and sharing-of-knowledge opportunities regarding the health and well-being of our Peoples as keys to empowerment.
NAHO was unique because it was the only national Aboriginal-controlled organization in Canada that was set up with three population specific Centres dedicated to advance and promote the distinct health needs of First Nations, Inuit and Métis populations through knowledge-based initiatives.
As part of the collaboration agreement held with the National Aboriginal Health Organization, our program was pleased to offer several webinars in the areas of sexual health, social media as well as housing, homelessness and health.
A sexual health webinar series was offered based on implementation of the two Sexual Health Toolkits that were developed by the National Aboriginal Health Organization and the Native Youth Sexual Health Network. In collaboration with the NAHO Speaker Series, coverage for both their social media workshop and housing, homelessness and health webinars were offered via our webinar platform.
Promotion coverage in the Journal of Aboriginal of Health publication for our program also served as part of the collaboration agreement.
As a dedication to the National Aboriginal Health Organization and our common belief to provide sharing-of-knowledge opportunities regarding the health and well-being of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, we offer you a listing of all the NAHO publications and resources that were sent to us as a gift.
