Institute for Circumpolar Health Research

The Institute for Circumpolar Health Research grew out of the Arctic Health Research Network, founded in 2005 by Northern community members, doctors, academics, and scientists who believed that advancing the health and wellness of Northern people and communities as an important area of scientific inquiry and public policy. ICHR specifically focuses on bringing people, facilities, and resources to bear on health-related research in the Northwest Territories, as well as on raising health and wellness issues throughout the region’s communities and the broader circumpolar world. Formerly affiliated with the University of Toronto, but based and led by Northern researchers, it has recently grown to include an affiliate in Greenland. Through capacity sharing, ICHR is also currently serving as the secretariat for many circumpolar-oriented research organizations.
