What is the 6th International Meeting on Indigenous Child Health?
The International Meeting on Indigenous Child Health is a biennial event that brings together practitioners, researchers, advocates, community members and others who care about the health of children and youth in First Nations, Inuit, Métis,
American Indian, Alaska Native and other Indigenous communities around the world. By sharing scholarly and
participatory research findings, and community-based wisdom, the conference is a unique forum for knowledge exchange.


At the end of the conference, participants will be able to:


• Better meet the changing health needs and address
environmental factors that impact Indigenous children,
youth and their communities.
• Apply new skills and insights about the determinants of
Indigenous health to promote the well-being of children,
youth and communities.
• Work with others toward achieving health equity for
Indigenous children, youth and communities.
• Better understand culturally competent care, including

communities.
• Describe critical success factors that contribute to healthy
Indigenous communities.
