Health Systems, Health Law and Policy – About

My research uses a health systems approach advanced by the World Health Organization and the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research to examine the complexities of moving healthcare across systems (from the health to the legal system) in an Indigenous, Arctic criminal court context. My focus is on identifying key system-level issues that compromise equitable health service access and appropriate quality of care. The goal is to facilitate system design and policy development appropriate to regions characterized by remote geography, widely dispersed populations and challenges with retention of health professionals.
