The International Union for Circumpolar Health (IUCH) is the only organization of its kind dedicated to health in the Arctic and Antarctic and brings together several organizations from the entire circumpolar region. Its five constituent bodies include: the American, Canadian and Danish/Greenlandic Societies for Circumpolar Health, the Nordic Society for Arctic Medicine and the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences.

 
 Via its Congress, the IUCH addresses the long-standing need for the exchange of health-related knowledge amongst scientists, health care professionals, policy analysts, government agencies, and community leaders, as well as the results of recent research efforts for the benefit of all humankind.
