abstract

  • The Feast Centre is focused on reducing the health impacts of sexually-transmitted and blood-borne infection (STBBIs) for Indigenous communities. Let by a team of Indigenous community and scholars, the goal of the centre is to use Indigenous knowledge to shape future STBBI research. Drawing community-based research, and Indigenous and decolonizing approaches to doing research, the following objectives are proposed: (1) support STBBI research that uses Indigenous knowledge to reduce STBBIs in Indigenous communities; (2) support communities, investigators, and trainees through mentorship programs, Learning Institutes, writing retreats, and conference participation; and (3) to focus on interventions and the use of knowledge produced in research to inform health policy and programs.
