This climate change health assessment project was initiated in 2013 by the North Slope Borough, Health Impact Assessment (HIA) program with a grant from the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. The project is in collaboration with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC), Center for Climate and Health, and participating local governments. ANTHC performed an assessment in 2009 in Point Hope with funding from the U.S. Indian Health Service. Under the current project, baseline information on climate change vulnerabilities was compiled for all of the communities in the North Slope Borough, but with a special focus on Wainwright, Nuiqsut, Atqusuk and Barrow.
