MetadataShow full item record
"Circumpolar regions have much in common beyond climate and geography. While health priorities are generally similar, health and social policies, service delivery systems, available resources, and population characteristics vary considerably across regions. As a consequence, substantial disparities in health outcomes exist among circumpolar countries and regions. Monitoring, documenting, and disseminating health statistical data will contribute to improvements in the design of policies, planning of services, and evaluation of programs by government agencies, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, and communities across the circumpolar world. The creation and maintenance of a Circumpolar Health Observatory [CircHOB] provides an invaluable service to a diversity of users." /.../
