NAHO Publishes Special Journal Devoted to Aboriginal Women’s Health

NEWS RELEASE
March 14, 2008
For Immediate Release

OTTAWA, ON — The National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) has released a special issue of the Journal of Aboriginal Health devoted to the health of Aboriginal women.

Eight original articles from leading health scholars, academics and Aboriginal community members are included in the issue, the first in a two-part volume dedicated to Aboriginal women’s health. Together, the articles help to shed light on some of the latest research and key issues related to Aboriginal women’s health.“NAHO is delighted to be able to share such a diverse and valuable collection of new research on such an important health topic,” said Dr. Paulette Tremblay, CEO for NAHO. “Aboriginal women’s health has long been identified as a priority area of concern in our communities and NAHO is thrilled to be able to address some of these pressing issues in our esteemed journal.”

In addition to issues of healthy body weight, violence, HIV, and urban and rural health care needs, the papers address topics such as how tradition and culture influence health status, and how both physical and cultural activities can have positive effects upon Aboriginal women’s health (see backgrounder for full abstracts of the articles). A second issue of the volume on Aboriginal women’s health will be published later this year.

In addition to the release of the special volume, the latest issue also unveils the new design and logo for the journal. The new look aims to add an air of professionalism to the journal that complements the well-regarded and authoritative research within.

The Journal of Aboriginal Health is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes in-depth analysis of Aboriginal health issues. NAHO created the journal in 2004 to fill a void in the availability and accessibility of health information and Aboriginal health research results.

The National Aboriginal Health Organization is an Aboriginal-designed and -controlled body that works to influence and advance the health and well-being of Aboriginal Peoples through knowledge-based strategies.
