Purpose of Study 

Indigenous women's wellness has multigenerational impacts on the health of indigenous communities.  VCH Aboriginal Health has identified indigenous women's wellness as a priority, and this research will bring the voice of indigenous women into VCH policy and program development.  These goals include understanding indigenous women's experiences of VCH health services in Vancouver and collaborating with these women to identify their priorities in health care.
