About this event

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the SARS –CoV-2 coronavirus (COVID-19) to be a global pandemic. Since that declaration, the pandemic has reached millions of people across the planet and continues to impact global heath to this day. In the Circumpolar North, the pandemic has also highlighted many of the long-standing challenges to health systems and the complexities inherent in managing infectious diseases in small and remote communities with limited resources. 

 

This webinar brings together public health leaders from Alaska, Canada, and Greenland to share their perspectives on regional experiences with the pandemic. The goal of this session is to look “beyond the numbers” and better understand the social and health system challenges and successes in diverse Circumpolar contexts.

 

This webinar is hosted by the Research Exchange Group on Rural Health at the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied Health Research, and is  sponsored by the International Union for Circumpolar Health and the School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies at the Labrador Institute, of Memorial University. The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Anders Koch from the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Prevention at Statens Serum Institut in Denmark.
