The Arctic Infectious Disease working groups are a number of working groups committed to scientific studies, sharing, and disseminating knowledge about specific infectious diseases in the Arctic. The groups are open to all health professionals and other interested working with or interested in infectious diseases in the Arctic.
The first working group was the Hepatitis Working Group that held its first meeting in 2006 in Novosibirsk in conjunction with the 13th International Conference on Circumpolar Health (ICCH13). Subsequently the Helicobacter pylori working group was formed, and most recently the Tuberculosis working group and the Climate Change and Infectious Disease working group were formed.
The working group hold annual meetings between June and September. In the ICCH-years (every third year) the meetings are held in connection with those, and in the years between the meetings have so far been held in Copenhagen.
