Notes
Access to health services is widely acknowledged as a determinant of health. This fact sheet explores how accessibility, availability and acceptability of health services impact the health and health outcomes of Indigenous peoples across Canada. Although Canada boasts a universal health care system that is widely considered to be among the best in the world, Indigenous peoples continue to experience barriers to accessing health care. The fact sheet will examine some of the complexities that influence Indigenous peoples’ experiences and encounters with the health system including colonialism, geography, health systems, health human resources, jurisdictional issues, communications, cultural safety, and traditional medicines. In order to address the ongoing health disparities experienced by Indigenous peoples, the fact sheet concludes by providing strategies and innovations for improving their access to health services.

Notes
On January 22, 1979, an 11-yr-old Native girl died of a ruptured appendix in an Alert Bay, B.C. hospital. The events that followed are chronicled here by Dara Culhane Speck, a member by marriage of the Nimpkish Indian Band in Alert Bay. She has relied mainly on interviews, anecdotes and public records to describe how this small, isolated Native community took on the local hospital, the [BC] College of Physicians and Surgeons, provincial and federal ministries of health and national media, because their private tragedy held implications that reached far beyond one child, one physician, one town and even one century.
