There are many libraries, newsletters, and collections of circumpolar health information. Most of the previous congress proceedings are available online, either through the National Library of Medicine’s Arctic Health Portal for congresses prior to Harstaad (2000), or through the IJCH for congresses from Harstaad onwards.
Here are some more links to circumpolar health and organization websites. Please note, this list is not exhaustive:
