Journal History

New Journal Name and Publisher

The Journal of Aboriginal Health (JAH) has a new name and publisher. The Journal was transferred from the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) to the Aboriginal Health Research Networks Secretariat (AHRNetS) in 2012.

The Editorial Advisory Board for the Journal was formed in Spring 2013 from nominations of experts in Indigenous health from the Network Environments for Aboriginal Health Research (NEAHR) centres from across Canada. To reflect the growing international interest in the Journal, AHRNetS has re-named it the International Journal of Indigenous Health (IJIH). Building on its trusted reputation for sharing community-relevant and high-quality knowledge, the IJIH now welcomes submissions within the IJIH mandate from researchers and practitioners in Indigenous health around the world.

Volumes 1-9 are available on the IJIH website.  Forthcoming Volumes will be available with its new name on the IJIH website.

About the National Aboriginal Health Organization (2000-2012)

The National Aboriginal Health Organization(NAHO) was a national knowledge-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of health and well-being of Aboriginal individuals, families and communities.  NAHO was unique and first of its kind in Canada as the only national Aboriginal-controlled organization comprised of three population specific Centres – First Nations, Inuit and Métis.  NAHO closed its doors in 2012 when its funding was terminated but their resource-intensive website including Journal Volumes 1-9(1) will remain online until 2017: http://naho.ca.
