Tlicho Government Launches Health Research Organization

The Tlicho Government has just launched a new health research organization for the Northwest Territories.

The new organization, named Hotiì ts’eeda, will help support health research and cultural training and knowledge that addresses the needs of communities in the NWT.

Rachel MacNeill, Communications Advisor for Hotiì ts’eeda, says the organization helps to connect community members with researchers to help create a more culturally sensitive health system.

Connecting communities with researchers so that a researcher who wants to do work in the NWT, is going to have really meaningful partnerships with people in the community and organizations in the community, so that their research can really be centered around that patient experience.

MacNeill says, that overall the new health organization wants to ensure that health research is used to revitalize culture and improve the health of residents living the NWT.
