About the Project
The Technical Cooperation Project between Tierra del Fuego (TDF) and the Canadian territory of Nunavut (located on the north end of the Americas), aims to promote an exchange on the subject of health among some of the most isolated territories of the Region of the Americas, which share many similar challenges.
The two ends of the Americas
Nunavut is both the least populated and the largest in geography of the provinces and territories of Canada. One of the most remote, sparsely settled regions in the world, it has a mostly Inuit population, spread over an area the size of Western Europe. Nunavut is also home to the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world.
Although it has an area of 2,093,190 km2 (twice that of TDF), it has a population of 31,100 inhabitants, the smallest and least dense of Canada (approximately 20% of the population in Tierra del Fuego, which has an estimated population of 133,884).
Supported by the Pan American Health Organization and Health Canada the project seeks to further strengthen and promote Panamericanism and solidarity among countries that share similar challenges in the Region. Collaboration and cooperation among the countries of the Region, with the support of international organizations, has become an essential tool to establish and develop strategic areas and approaches to find common themes, in order to reduce inequities in the Region and within countries.
This site will publish news and the main results of this exchange, so as to provide guidance for project participants and others interested in similar projects.
