CALL TO ACTION
INDIGENOUS MEDICAL ALLIANCE
Our Mission and Who We Are
Indigenous Medical Alliance is a project under the umbrella of True North Aid designed to support the healthcare needs and requirements of individuals living in our Northern communities.
In Canada, Indigenous peoples face the biggest health inequities compared to their non-Indigenous counter parts.
Our objective is to help close the gap between government and the people requiring services relating to their health. This includes access to medical equipment that they may not be able to completely afford or locate within their communities throughout northern Canada.
