Report should contain “regional-specific and national level recommendations”
Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami plans to step into a health domain that is usually overseen by territorial and provincial governments: midwifery.
An ITK request for proposals, which closed on June 20, is looking for a midwifery status assessment that will focus on assessing the “status, strengths and barriers of midwifery practices” in the four Inuit Nunangat regions.
ITK said its assessment should produce an executive summary report and a full report outlining the status of midwifery in each of the regions.
