Northern Health works with Aboriginal leaders in each of the three regions to establish permanent Aboriginal Health Improvement Committees (AHICs). AHIC members include health representatives from First Nations communities, Aboriginal organizations, First Nations Health Authority, and local Northern Health leadership. 

AHICs meet to share information and work in partnership on identified health care issues facing Aboriginal people in the area. They review issues and concerns and work together towards practical solutions.   

AHICs can provide helpful local and regional health system information including information about the health of their local population and the health of their communities. Committees can engage in meaningful dialogue with local service providers and managers to provide Northern Health with advice on a wide range of issues.

There are eight AHICs operating throughout the North.
