SeeChange is founded to respond to the tuberculosis epidemic facing Inuit communities in the Canadian Arctic. Given the impacts of colonialism, SeeChange learns that communities must own and lead their health crisis responses for them to be effective and sustainable.
SeeChange partners with Ilisaqsivik Society, an Inuit-led organization working on Inuit mental health in Clyde River. Together we co-design trauma-informed TB workshops. Inuit Elders gain agency in their health and wellness.
Co-designed with Ilisaqsivik Society and the Hamlet of Clyde River, SeeChange’s Community First COVID-19 Roadmap supports vulnerabilised communities to organize, prepare, and respond to COVID-19. Curated by medical experts, we translate the Roadmap into 6 languages including Inuktitut, Spanish and Swahili.
We accompany 12 communities globally as they work with the CommunityFirst COVID-19 Roadmap. Over 300 community leaders are trained with the Roadmap and it has been accessed in over 100 countries. Communities can access verified and updated information as well as community-facing materials.
SeeChange partners with Médecins Sans Frontières /Doctors without Borders (MSF) Latin America to pilot the CommunityFirst framework and involve communities in each phase of MSF's project cycle. We have pilot projects in Peru, Sierra Leone and Venezuela.
