This project is the doctoral work of the Executive and Scientific Director, Gwen Healey. Nunavut expereinces very high rates of sexually transmitted infections. There is very little understanding as to why this is so. This work focuses on exploring the perspectives of youth and parents on what critical issues are for today's youth in making safe and healthy decisions about sexual health and relationships.
This work is supported in principle by the Nunavut Dept. of Health and Social Services, Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., the community wellness centres in Arviat and Cambridge Bay.
