Assessing the positive and negative societal outcomes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in Arctic communities
The purpose of this project is to implement a three-phase multi-site case study in each Arctic State to assess the positive and negative societal outcomes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in Arctic communities. Specifically, it will assess the impact of public health measures associated with COVID-19. This work will identify community-driven models and evidence-based promising practices and recommendations that can help inform cohesive and coordinated public health responses and protocols related to future public health emergencies in the Arctic. Research sites will include one community each from Nunavut, Alaska, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia.
The project will address the following research questions:
