NEIHR National Coordinating Centre

The Network Environments for Indigenous Health Research

The Network Environments for Indigenous Health Research (NEIHR) Program, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, is a national network of networks focused on capacity development, research and knowledge translation centred on First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples. These independent, Indigenous-led networks provide supportive research environments for Indigenous health research driven by, and grounded in, Indigenous communities in Canada.

The NEIHR program is funded by the Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health (IIPH), with financial support from all 13 CIHR Institutes to support these networks until 2035.

There are nine NEIHRs across Canada, as well as a NEIHR National Coordinating Centre that facilitates collaboration between the NEIHRs, a national evaluation strategy, the National Gathering of Graduate Students, and national and international research collaborations.
