In a joint project with Maniilaq, Inc. and the Alaska Center for Rural Health, a comprehensive community health assessment was completed for the communities in the Northwest Arctic Native Association region.

Using standard survey methods tailored through input from the involved communities, nearly 1300 household surveys were collected and analyzed. Principle interests were to determine community health problems and needs, and identify strategies for initiating improvements of the well being of these communities. Consumer satisfaction, environmental concerns and the role of tribal governance were examined.

A final report is available through the UAA Consortium Library and ICHS.
