Abstract
Structural change of northern populations (in constitutions, psychotypes and adaptive types) results from natural selection of people most effectively adapted to the North and readapted ones, i.e. having good adaptive capacity for these specific conditions. Organisms of many immigrants in northern regions in several cases (restricted time for adaptive processes and lack of functional, constitutional or mental reserves) are not able to adapt and function in the condition of increased functional power inputs. The resulting stress is reflected in reduction of functional reserves and undermined working capacity at individual and organismic level and in life expectancy at the populational level. Despite the human progress in the creation of technical protection means against the adverse environmental factors, adaptation remains one of the most important components determining the health condition of a person in the North. This problem is quite complex and many-sided and it is characterized by lots of contradictory scientific facts. In this article two aspects of the problem are discussed: 1) Structural change in northern populations (constitutions, psychotypes and adaptive types) resulting from the natural selection of people most effectively adapted to the North and also readapted ones, i.e. having good adaptive capacity in these specific conditions; 2) For unadapted people, activity leads to the reduction in functional reserves and working capacity at individual and organismic level and in life expectancy at the populational level.

Abstract
Objective: The Circumpolar Health Bibliographic Database (CHBD) contains 4,850 records describing publications about all aspects of human health in the circumpolar region. The database is a project of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Team in circumpolar health research. In this paper we describe the CHBD. Methods: Descriptive study. Results: The CHBD induces all types of publications, both peer-reviewed and "gray" (not peer-reviewed) literature, in paper and digital formats. It can be searched using words from titles and abstracts, names of diseases or conditions, types of people, geographic regions, authors, years and special groups of publications, such as all publications of the members of the CIHR Team. Search results can be sorted by year or by first author. The records in the CHBD contain citations, abstracts, subject and geographic indexing terms, library symbols and links to 2,000 online publications. As part of the CHBD project, server space is available to make PDF files of publications available online. Records created for the CHBD also appear in the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS), the international Arctic & Antarctic Regions database and in relevant Canadian regional databases, such as the Inuvialuit Settlement Region Database, the Nunavut Environmental Database and the Nunavik Bibliography. Conclusions: The CHBD's coverage is far from comprehensive but the database includes many publications not indexed elsewhere, such as "gray" literature from Canada's northern territories, all human health publications from the Northern Contaminants Program and International Polar Year health publications.

Abstract
BACKGROUND: High, or increasing, rates of invasive Haemophilus influenzae (Hi) type a disease have been reported from North American native children from circumpolar regions, raising the question of serotype replacement being driven by vaccination against Hi type b (Hib). Indigenous Australians from remote areas had high rates of invasive Hib disease in the past, comparable to those in North American Indigenous populations.
OBJECTIVE: Evaluate incidence rates of invasive Hi (overall and by serotype) in Indigenous Australian children over time.
DESIGN: Descriptive study of Hi incidence rates by serotype, in the Northern Territory (NT) and South Australia (SA) from 2001 to 2011. Comparison of NT data with a study that was conducted in the NT in 1985-1988, before Hib vaccine was introduced.
RESULTS: The average annual rate of invasive Hi type a (Hia) disease in Indigenous children aged
