This report is the product of a strong and developing relationship between MCHP and the First Nations Health and Social Secretariat of Manitoba. It looks at health and healthcare use patterns of First Nations people living in Manitoba. The analyses provide comparisons between First Nations and all other Manitobans, comparisons between on and off reserve First Nations, and regional comparisons by Regional Health Authority and by Tribal Council Areas. It is the first study to use the Regional Health Survey which includes on-reserve First Nation peoples. The results demonstrate the widening gap between the health of First Nations and all other Manitobans and point to inequities in service provision.

All RHAs in Manitoba are working to complete the 2019 cycle of comprehensive community health assessment reports. To produce their reports, the RHAs require region- and district-specific data on a range of key indicators of health status and health care use. This deliverable updates and refines key indicators from the 2013 RHA Atlas and incorporates new indicators from other reports, including a number of indicators of maternal and child health.
