Transforming our realities: The determinants of health and Indigenous Peoples is the third in a series of forums on the social determinants of Indigenous peoples' health. This forum focused on various mechanisms for exploring Indigenous social determinants of health, including infrastructure needs, partnerships and/or collaborations to assist in moving on a health agenda, and tools to assist in facilitating intersectoral collaboration to address social determinants of health within communities.
