Primary data collection complete for community component of Qanuilirpitaa? Nunavik Health Survey

My colleague Marie-Claude Lyonnais (Université Laval) and I have returned from 3 weeks of additional fieldwork in order to complete a total of nearly three months of primary data collection for the community component of Qanuilirpitaa? Nunavik Health Survey. Our team completed  hundreds of short, structured interviews with resources in each village to understand how different organizations, services, or programs contribute to health and well-being at the community scale. We also completed 3-7 conversational interviews in each of the 14 communities of Nunavik to understand how Nunavimmiut view and understand community health in their communities.

We are continuing our data analysis and aim to present results to the communities as they become available.
