The report gives the status of both the health of Nunavummiut as well as the performance of our health care system.The Government of Nunavut is committed to providing high quality health care, and healthprevention programs and services that meet the needs of Nunavummiut and a document like thishelps to keep us accountable.You will find that in some areas we are healthier than Canadians as a whole and in other areas we arenot as healthy. As a Department we continually work to improve our health in some areas andmaintain our positive health in other areas.As you read this report, you will be able to compare the health of Nunavummiut with the health of other Canadians, and you may find the results surprising.Nunavummiut deserve to know how both their health and health care services compare to the restof Canada. With that in mind, it is my pleasure to release the
