App developed locally to connect Indigenous kids to health services is going national – Sudbury.com

Health tool developed by Wikwemikong health centre and Laurentian University going Canada-wide thanks to $1.5M federal grant

A tool developed in the Manitoulin Island community of Wikwemikong to assess the health of Indigenous children is going Canada-wide thanks to a $1.5-million grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), a federal agency.

The Aboriginal Children’s Health and Well-being Measure (ACHWM) — or I aM Well — is a joint project between Naandwechige-Gamig Wikwemikong Health Centre and Laurentian University.

The tool takes the form of an easy-to-use app. Kids and teens between eight and 18 years old can fill out the questionnaire themselves in about 15 minutes on a tablet, providing information on their physical and mental well-being.

Even if the children have low literacy levels, they can still fill out the questionnaire themselves because the tablet can speak.
