About our organization

IDHC provides programs focusing on diabetes education, prevention, and management in Indigenous communities in Ontario, both on and off-reserve — serving First nation, Métis, and Inuit communities.

Facilitating community capacity-building, building upon traditional strengths and supporting community-driven programming has been a hallmark of the work of IDHC for the past 20 years.

In collaboration with 100-plus partners, the IDHC team works to:

  • Develop and distribute culturally-appropriate education, promotion and prevention resources based on community needs
  • Support access to treatment and care options
  • Coordinate services
  • Identify local and regional service needs related to diabetes
  • Share relevant diabetes research
  • Act as a resource for other health and education service providers
