Abstract

The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) Human Health Assessment Group (HHAG) undertook an assessment and meeting to summarize arctic contaminant and human health research undertaken during the International Polar Years (IPYs). This meeting took place in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada, on June 10–12, 2009. This report summarizes the much more voluminous document AMAP Assessment 2009: Human Health in the Arctic (AMAP 2009a) that was released and discussed at the Iqaluit meeting.
