Indigenous and cultural health: empowering women

Week of 02/10 - convened by Sophie Cerutti

We often discuss importance of implementing health care in a way that respects a societies traditional, cultural and religious beliefs. But how do you actually go about doing that? The Answer: Women. This module will discuss the empowerment of women in disadvantaged cultures and the reciprocal impact this can have on the community and its health. We will discuss how important it is to foster a communities’ inherent culture in order to precipitate constructive community development. This module is ultimately about respecting the link between cultural wellbeing and physical health.
