AVA is creating the capacity to transform community health and social services to promote health and wellness of girls and women at risk or affected by violence and adversity over the life-cycle.
Honouring Orange Shirt Day
AVA is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
The AVA Health Research Training Platform is located at the University of Calgary, on the traditional territory of the Treaty 7 peoples who include the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations), Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Stoney Nakoda (Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The land is also the traditional home to Metis Nation Region 3. We are grateful to be able work, live and recreate in these beautiful lands.
