Aboriginal Health Human Resources Initiative (AHHRI) fact sheet: H34-303/2016E-PDF

“Indigenous communities require qualified health workers to deliver high quality, culturally safe health services. Ensuring an adequate supply of nurses, doctors and community-based workers is a challenge for some Indigenous communities. The Aboriginal Health Human Resources Initiative (AHHRI) invests $4.5 million annually in training and education. It aims to increase the number of Indigenous people entering health careers. It also provides training to community‑based workers and health managers delivering health services in First Nations and Inuit communities"--p. [1].
