Knowledge is Power – building capacities for First Nations control of health services



Dr. Jeff Reading
Director of the Centre for Aboriginal Health Research based at the University of Victoria (UVic)
Professor in the School of Public Health and Social Policy, Faculty of Human and Social Development, UVic

Dr. Reading’s research has brought attention to such critical issues as disease prevention, tobacco use and misuse, healthy living, accessibility to health care, and diabetes among Aboriginal people in Canada. His determination to develop solutions contributed to the creation of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research – Institute of Aboriginal Peoples’ Health in 2000 as part of a movement calling for a national advanced research agenda in the area of Aboriginal health. The outcome of the CIHR-IAPH is to improve the health of Aboriginal Peoples’ living in Canada and work collaboratively to improve indigenous peoples’ health globally.

  1. Friend hi my name is Matthew Hasbrouck I really hope you get this. I have been working on something that you may be interested in. I can't believe I have come across your video because you have already started to build my master business plan to save the world from the banks collapsing the world governments.

    I can get you unlimited funding at a growth that could be global. You have already started the network and you are in the unique area. Health. You want to close the gap between groups? If you that big I have found a way to create a global self sustaining self governing perpetual global platform using A.I. that is open to the people of the world.

    But the way to get people to want to use it it will have to have something people want.
    So what you do is make a business plan for an A.I. system that has rules on how everything will run then you make the A.I. open source for self governance so any one person could challenge something based on rules.

    After you set up your plan you take the business and put it in 3 different trusts that would be monitored by any user and make the people's of the world the irrevocable beneficiary so that any person who used the platform would be equal owners. That would get people to invest their skills into a platform that made the users owners. There could be A.I. teachers teaching and learning from everyone using a platform the people could go to for things that matter like health. If you make sure only humans can join the platform that would give the people control over their data. It would collect mass amounts of useful data that would just be used to grow.

    Everyone will be equal owner who will get shares of the profits at the end of the year. Of course the business plan you build will have all expenses covered by one of the trust leaving room for the platform to grow.

    When people see anything they invest they get back people will be more willing to get involved it the platform became theirs they get shares they have a place to meet people in common at a global scale and even once enough people joined they could start selling their data or get paid just for going through the platform.

    The hardest thing would be making that plan to govern itself with the overseers being the people because once you put it in the trust its locked in for life till every last person stops using it.

    A contract in the terms would say that is a private club and all information shared is protected when it comes to practice and sharing ideas. But rules should be put in the A.I. so people can not post wrong or bad info.

    I hope you were able to understand that but I think it would grow like no other group platform has ever grown. It might be a good idea if the platform could provide a global identity that all the countries would recognize.

    Hope you get this. I would get involved for sure,
