MISSION: TO MAXIMIZE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF IN-HOME RUNNING WATER AND SANITATION SERVICES IN RURAL ALASKA.
There are a variety of entities in Alaska working towards improving health outcomes in rural Alaska by providing and improving water services in villages. The US Arctic Research Commission (USARC) is coordinating these groups so that this work is maximally efficient and ideas can be shared across federal, state, Alaska Native, and academic groups. The group we coordinate is called the Alaska Rural Water and Sanitation Working Group and our work is directly applicable to the USARC’s priority goal of Arctic Human Health.
