The Assembly of First Nations, through the Chiefs Committee on Economic Development, has established a Make Poverty History Expert Advisory Committee. As part of its activity, the committee has been successful in obtaining a 5-year research grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Institute of Aboriginal Peoples Health (IAPH). The Poverty Action Research Project has identified five volunteer First Nation communities in different parts of Canada who are interested in working with the Project Team. This will involve designing and implementing a strategic plan to create a sustainable economic base, reduce poverty, and improve the health and well-being of community members.
