The Circumpolar Health Research Network (CHRN) was formed in 2012 with the coming together of two international circumpolar health organizations — the International Network for Circumpolar Health Research (INCHR) and the International Association of Circumpolar Health Publishers (IACHP). This new association aims to:
- Promote cooperation and collaboration among health researchers engaged in research in the circumpolar region.
- Facilitate the exchange, communication and dissemination of research results and other health data.
- Support the training and development of researchers in circumpolar health.
- Publish the International Journal of Circumpolar Health and other scholarly publications.
