Health equity for Indigenous people

Understanding what health means to Indigenous people is an important step in learning more about Indigenous Health Equity.

Areas of the Napanee Area Community Health Centre (NACHC) are dedicated to Indigenous health.  Equity has a more personal, individualized connotation.  It's making sure that each person receives the health care that is appropriate to them.

Indigenous health programs at the NACHC and in Deseronto include counselling and traditional teachings with an elder, services of an Indigenous nurse practitioner, and an Indigenous community development worker. There are Indigenous drum circles and
other cultural programs and workshops held at the centres. One of the new programs now running in Deseronto is a blood pressure clinic. For more information, read the Whig Standard news article.

Learn about more services offered at the NACHC.
