The Indigenous Primary Health Care Council (IPHCC) is a new Indigenous- governed culture-based and Indigenous-informed organization. Its key mandate is to support the advancement and evolution of Indigenous primary health care services provision and planning throughout Ontario. Membership currently includes Aboriginal Health Access Centres (AHAC), Aboriginal governed, Community Health Centres (ACHC), other Indigenous governed providers and partnering Indigenous health researchers and scholars.
The organization promotes high quality care provision through the Model of Wholistic Health and Wellbeing, population needs based approach to health care planning, Indigenous informed evaluation approaches and scaling leading practices for excellence in Indigenous health. We are status neutral, which means we support Indigenous organizations providing services to Indigenous people who live on and off reserve, status, non-status, Inuit, and Metis within Ontario. The Council also provides capacity support to the ten new and developing Indigenous Interprofessional Care Teams.
We support our members to provide culturally appropriate, culturally safe, Indigenous informed, high quality health and community wellness programs and services.
