TRC Call to Action #18

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission's 94 Calls to Action are divided into two major sections: LEGACY and RECONCILIATION. Within the Legacy section, the first 17 Calls to Action (and, therefore, these posts) covered the sub-categories of Child Welfare and Education.

Call to Action #18 begins the Health category in the Legacy section:

18. We call upon the federal, provincial, territorial, and Aboriginal governments to acknowledge that the current state of Aboriginal health in Canada is a direct result of previous Canadian government policies, including residential schools, and to recognize and implement the health-care rights of Aboriginal people as identified in international law, constitutional law, and under the Treaties.
