Written both by members of the Inuit community and by various health practitioners, Voices and Images of Nunavimmiut: Health offers a pioneering look at the many worries and obstacles surrounding the delivery of sound and culturally appropriate health services to Nunavik. Contributors deal with problems of providing adequate health services in small Arctic villages, where there is often only one nurse on hand to make life-and-death decisions. The book also deals with the complex issue of establishing culturally sensitive services to ten-thousand Inuit living in an area larger than the state of California. Editors offer insights and reactions from the perspective of the Inuit as they take control of health services introduced by policy makers in the south. With global interest in the Arctic rapidly increasing, Voices and Images of Nunavimmiut: Health presents an important and timely glimpse into the health concerns and services of Nunavik.
