Inuit Sexual Health Network

In November of 2016, Tavva – the National Inuit Sexual Health Strategy was co-developed and the result of a collaboration between Pauktuutit and a group of sexual health subject matter experts, representing each of the four Inuit Regions and across the federal, provincial, territorial governments, and Inuit governance organizations. The SHN continues to implement recommendations from Tavva and strengthen understanding of the determinants of sexual health.
