Qanuilirpitaa? Nunavik Regional Inuit Health Survey results are out

Between 2017-2019, I worked as the Project Coordinator for the community component of the most recent regional Nunavimmiut health survey called Qanuilirpitaa? (How are we now?). I am pleased to share that the results are now published on the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services website.

Reports are available on the following themes: mental health and wellness; sociocultural determinants of health and wellness; substance use; iron deficiency and anemia; oral health; respiratory health; unintentional injuries; housing and drinking water; and sociodemographic characteristics.

Researchers from the community component team will also be presenting at this year’s virtual Arctic Change conference, next week! You can view the program here. Look for our paper presentation:
