Scope and contentFile contains a presentation by Dr. Chris Durocher and Dr. David Skinner, representatives, Yukon Medical Association, that focuses on numerous issues relating to health care in the North, including under-representation of First Nations people at the administrative and health workers levels, the relationship between poverty and ill health, and little to non-existent treatment for First Nations persons with mental health problems. Durocher concludes by saying the Yukon Medical Association "strongly believes that self-determination for Aboriginal peoples is a prerequisite for healing and development of wellness, wellness meaning that of body, mind and spirit. Control of their cultural rights, land resources, education, justice system and health care delivery must come into the hands of Aboriginal peoples. A question-and-answer session with Commissioner Allan Blakeney follows the presentation.
