Indigenous Healthy Life Trajectories Initiative: components

The CIHR Healthy Life Trajectories Initiative with strategic leadership from the CIHR Institute of Aboriginal Peoples' Health (IAPH) in collaboration with the CIHR Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH), Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH), CIHR Institute of Gender and Health (IGH), and CIHR Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH) is pleased to introduce this new initiative: Indigenous Component of HeLTI.

Development Grants

The Development Grants are expected to be the first stage of a longer-term initiative whose objective is to enable the development of Indigenous-focused interventions designed to improve health outcomes across the lifespan for Indigenous boys, girls, women, men, gender-diverse and Two-Spirit individuals in Canada.

The Development Grants will support communities to come together with self-identified relevant organizations to establish needed expertise to support Indigenous-driven health research and will provide support for workshop preparation activities, community personnel support, and travel support to attend the workshop. The expected planning activities consist of local and/or regional scanning to determine readiness, priority areas of interest and capacity within the community to conduct a research cohort. The travel support will enable community participation in the workshop, expected to be held in Ottawa.
