Peer Review Committee in Aboriginal Peoples' Health

This is a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) committee with great relevance to the Institute of Aboriginal Peoples' Health (IAPH). The committee reviews research applications using the full range of relevant disciplinary methodologies, with an emphasis on the integration of advanced health research methods with community-based approaches, multi-sectoral partnership models, participatory action research, and indigenous methodologies. Investigations that contribute to capacity building for both the advanced health research community and aboriginal populations are encouraged.

The committee considers the following types of research:

  • disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to aboriginal health research
  • ethical, cultural, mental, physical, social, psychological, spiritual, environmental, genetic determinants and/or aspects of illness and wellness in aboriginal populations
  • Aboriginal Health services, policy development and knowledge translation
  • Aboriginal world view of health and well-being that includes balancing mental, physical, spiritual and emotional aspects
  • investigating indigenous knowledge, traditional medicine, spiritual health

The current Peer Review Committee in Aboriginal Peoples' Health is posted on the website according to CIHR Guidelines.
