Volume 1, Issue 1 – Governance of Aboriginal Health
Welcome to the first issue of the Journal of Aboriginal Health. In early development almost three years ago, guided by the original consultation reports about the role of a national Aboriginal health institute, the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) became aware that there was a void in the availability and accessibility of health information and outcomes of Aboriginal health research. To remedy this, NAHO’s Board of Directors and staff decided to produce a research journal focusing on Aboriginal health. NAHO is an Aboriginal-designed and -controlled body that strives to influence and advance the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal Peoples by sharing and distributing knowledge on Aboriginal health issues.
