Call to Action #23 - Indigenous Representation In Healthcare
6 years after its release, I am finally digging into the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 calls to action. There are 70 days left in the year and the goal is to read and reflect on at least one call to action daily for the remainder of the year. Thank you for joining me on this journey. May our endeavour together be a catalyst for lasting progress and affect meaningful change in Canada.
Under the Health category, the 23nd Call To Action is:
“23. We call upon all levels of government to:
i. Increase the number of Aboriginal professionals working in the health care field.
ii. Ensure the retention of Aboriginal health-care providers in Aboriginal communities
iii. Provide cultural competency training for all health-care professionals”
