  Health challenges are increasing for all people living and working in the Arctic. There exist concerns on environmental contaminants, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, mental health, socio-economic conditions, as well as cultural challenges in a changing society. One important answer to these challenges is to facilitate research and education on public health issues for the next generation.

   As young generations and future elites in different disciplines and fields from China and the eight Arctic countries, our goals on the Arctic are to understand, protect, develop and participate in the governance of the Arctic. To understand human health in the Arctic is the important step to reach the goal.

  The teachers of the IAS-HIT-eSummer2020 will come from the Arctic countries and China, and students will be from China and other countries worldwide, the 8 Arctic countries in particular.

  The IAS-HIT is a subsidiary body of UArctic-HIT Training Centre, the first UArctic regional center outside the eight Arctic countries.
