Run by the SOGC's Aboriginal Health Initiative (AHI), this site aims to be a unique and evolving source of information and materials supporting improved health among First Nations, Inuit and Métis women. Our goal is to present an online space through which we can better interact with health care professionals, our partners, and Aboriginal women, their families and communities.

Founded in 1944, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) is a leading women's health organization with over 3600 members, including obstetricians, gynaecologists, family physicians, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals. The Aboriginal Health Initiative (AHI) has been a key pillar of the SOGC's Strategic Directions since 2006. Working with the dedicated members of the Aboriginal Heath Initiative (AHI) Committee, two full-time Coordinators and in collaboration with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal organizations, the goal of this Initiative is to advance culturally-safe health and healing for Aboriginal women.

The Aboriginal Health Initiative: Advancing women's health through education, partnerships, community initiatives, leadership and advocacy. A solid foundation for change.
