Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey (QNIHS) is an ongoing Inuit-owned and Inuit-determined, survey of Inuit health and well-being.
The Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey will provide an overall picture of the health and well-being of Inuit in all regions – what is going well and what areas need to be improved.
For the first time, this national survey will bring Inuit from across Inuit Nunangat together in partnership. The Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey data collection will take place in every community across Inuit Nunangat – the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Nunavut, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut. It will also take place with Inuit in Ottawa for the first round of the survey and may be expanded to other urban centres in subsequent rounds.
The Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey is more than just a survey. The design and implementation of the survey along with the analysis, dissemination and use of its results are intended to contribute to short- and long-term changes that ultimately improve the health and well-being of Inuit over time.
