What role will Inuit and their communities play?
Because the Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey is Inuit-determined and controlled, Inuit will lead all aspects of the survey. Each Inuit region has a steering committee in place to ensure Inuit engagement and participation during the entire survey process. For example: Inuit will be consulted to identify our health data and research priorities; local leaders such as mayors will be engaged to collaborate and promote the survey; local people will act as interviewers, translators and logistics experts; and, Inuit will be trained to analyze and disseminate the information.
