1.7 Improve the quality, efficiency, effectiveness, and value of health care delivery in the Arctic.
Arctic health systems have a unique set of challenges to contend with and many health disparities in the access to, cost of, and quality of care exist between people in a given nation’s Arctic regions and their larger, non-Arctic population. Hence, accurate and reliable data are critical to the development of more effective health care delivery approaches.
