Public Health Indigenous Leadership in Education (PHILE) Network
The PHILE Network is a coalition of leading national Indigenous public health academics and professionals formed from the National Indigenous Public Health Curriculum Network, to build capacity of Indigenous public health teaching and learning nationally.
The Network provides a forum for Indigenous public health academics and practitioners to exchange resources and ideas, and develop policies and programs of relevance to teaching and learning activities in public health. Specifically, it builds capacity of Masters of Public Health (MPH) programs in regards to integration of Indigenous health content.
