Provide an explanation of the purpose for the data access request.

Health Canada, First Nations and Inuit Health - Saskatchewan Region (FNIHB-SK) is seeking a FNIHB region report (similar to those of the health region reports) from the SAYCW schools located in First Nations communities. The purpose of requesting this report is to obtain a baseline health and well-being status of First Nations youth living on-reserve. The reason to obtain this information is because FNIHB-SK provides public health and population wellness programs and activities on First Nations communities. The information obtained from this report will be valuable to identify public health interventions and priorities in First Nations communities.

How will this data or analysis request assist with your work?

As the Acting Regional Epidemiology Manager, this information is valuable to programs and policy makers for planning and evaluation. Information on the baseline health status of youth living on-reserve would inform FNIHB-SK led public health programs and First Nations leadership regarding the progress and gaps in the area of youth well-being. The reason to obtain this information is because FNIHB-SK provides public health and population wellness programs and activities on First Nations communities. The information obtained from this report will be valuable to identify public health interventions and priorities in the given area.
