    Ce fascicule présente les résultats d’une enquête de santé menée en 2003 auprès des ménages de la région d’Iiyiyiu Aschii1. Une enquête similaire avait été réalisée par Santé Québec dans la région en 1991 (Santé Québec, 1994). Après plus de dix ans, il devenait indispensable pour la Direction de santé publique du Conseil cri de la santé et des services sociaux de la Baie James (CCSSSBJ) de disposer d’un nouveau portrait de l’état de santé de sa population. L’enquête de 2003 avait donc pour objectif de fournir des renseignements à jour sur les principaux problèmes de santé et leurs déterminants afin de mieux planifier, administrer et évaluer les divers programmes sociaux et sanitaires de la région.

    Depuis 2001, la Loi sur la santé publique attribue aux directions de santé...

    This publication presents the findings of a health survey carried out in 2003 among households of Iiyiyiu Aschii. A similar survey had been undertaken in the region by Santé Québec in 1991 (Santé Québec, 1994). Ten years later, the Public Health Department of the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay (CBHSSJB) urgently required a new picture of its population's state of health. The purpose of the 2003 survey was to gather upto-date information on the region's main health problems and related factors in order to improve the planning, administration, and evaluation of various social and health programs.

    The survey was conducted during the summer of 2003 using a representative sample of residents aged 12 and older from the nine communities in Iiyiyiu Aschii:...

    The Inuit communities of Nunavik have experienced profound change in every aspect of their lives over the last few decades. As contact with more southerly regions increased, the Inuit changed their living habits, adopting a more sedentary lifestyle, modern living conditions and new eating habits. The survey conducted by Santé Québec in 1992 demonstrated that these changes had an impact on the health status of this population. Ten years later, the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services (NRBHSS) deemed it important to make plans for a new survey in its region to monitor the evolution of the health status and state of well-being of its population.

    Thanks to the collaboration of a number of professionals from the health network and the university milieu, 17 theme...

    Au cours des dernières décennies, les communautés inuites du Nunavik ont connu de profonds changements dans tous les domaines de leur existence. Le contact sans cesse grandissant avec les populations des régions plus au sud a amené les Inuits à changer leurs habitudes de vie en adoptant, entre autres, un mode de vie plus sédentaire, des conditions de vie modernes et de nouvelles habitudes alimentaires. L'enquête menée par Santé Québec en 1992 révélait que ces changements avaient aussi leurs effets sur l'état de santé de cette population. Dix ans plus tard, la Régie régionale de la santé et des services sociaux du Nunavik (RRSSSN) jugea nécessaire d'organiser une nouvelle enquête sur son territoire en vue de suivre l'évolution de l'état de santé et de bien-être de sa population.
