Aboriginal Child & Youth Health
The Canadian Paediatric Society is one of more than 11 national organizations involved in a long-term initiative to reduce the health inequities facing First Nations, Inuit and Métis children and youth in Canada. The goal of Many Hands, One Dream is to build a new vision of health that has children, youth and families at its core.
The CPS also has other resources to help health professionals working with First Nations, Inuit and Métis children and youth.
