A report in Inuktitut based on a series of seven regional sessions across Canada that were organized to learn what programs and strategies are making a difference in the health of Aboriginal mothers and young children. A large proportion of participants were frontline health care workers and the commentary offers a window into the experiences and insights of people who work with and provide care to Aboriginal women and young children. The goal of the report is to create a better understanding of and support for programs and initiatives that have the potential to reduce health disparities between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians.

First Nations and Inuit women and infants face challenging health issues in their communities where there are environmental risks. Literature examining these contexts and the processes through which health is affected is relatively limited. The objective of this review is to examine and consolidate the available literature on environmental threats to First Nations and Inuit maternal health in order to identify priorities for future research.
