This political unit created an opportunity for a new relationship with federal and provincial governments, including health care. Since 2005, a number of historic health plans and conventions have been put in place: the FNHDA, the First Nations Health Council and the First Nations Health Agency have signed a relationship agreement to formalize our commitment to establishing an effective partnership based on shared values and understanding of our roles , collective and sectoral responsibilities and responsibilities in the new First Nations Health Management Agreement. The agreement also reaffirms our commitment to the unsealed seven UN Development Guidelines for Women and Women, including the strategic standard for a community-based approach to improving services and capacity development. It is a great honour for the Association of First Nations Health Directors to work with our key partners on the new First Nations Health Management Convention. The First Nations Health Directors Association is a professional affiliation-based organization dedicated to supporting health directors and managers working in First Nations communities across British Columbia. Our mission is to advocate for change, build partnerships and support the development of First Nations health directors, their health agencies and others to develop competence and excellence in traditional First Nations well-being. Our members are health program managers in First Nations communities that run health facilities, addiction treatment centres or health centres. They provide services to community members with complex health and social security needs and juggle several responsibilities in the provision of health services, including the management of human and financial health care resources. On October 13, 2011, an important role was signed by the signing of the convention, which provided the United Nations with an important role in the planning and management of health services for First Nations through a new health management structure. The B.C. First Nation First Nation Health Governance Framework Agreement paves the way for the federal government to transfer planning, design, management and implementation of First Nations health programs to a new First Nations health authority over the next two years.
The signing of the B.C. The First Nation`s Tripartite Framework Agreement on Health Administration is an important step in the tripartite First Nations plan signed in 2007. Our association and membership are well positioned to make a significant contribution to helping First Nations identify and achieve their own health outcomes, as policy discussions focus heavily on improving health services for First Nations.
