Community Information and Epidemiological Technologies
CIET has worked with over 200 First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities on a range of health issues, including substance abuse, prenatal nutrition, domestic violence, HIV/AIDS and youth suicide. CIET helps the communities to build research skills and to use research findings in planning.
Together with 52 research partners from six universities and several Aboriginal organizations, CIET houses the Anisnabe Kekendazone (Original Knowledge) Network Environment for Aboriginal Health Research (AK-NEAHR). This network funds training of Aboriginal health researchers across Canada through seed grants and fellowships.
