Abstract
Alaska is in a particularly critical period. The transition from territory to state presents complex tasks of organization to be accomplished with as little disturbance of functions as is humanly possible. New sources of revenue are to be tapped. New programs are to be initiated. Established services, formerly provided by federal agencies, are passing to the state. Alaska is in many respects still a frontier, undergoing settlement and early growth. A large segment of the population is moving from a primitive hunter's culture to the culture of the nuclear age almost in a single generation. Another segment is composed of transient military personnel and their dependents. The remainder is a complex of established settlers, newcomers, and seasonal workers, with multiplying demands for public services. A review of Alaska's health at this juncture seems timely. The successful development of Alaska as a home and as a resource for a democratic people depends on what is done to promote the health and vigor of all who live and work there, for this generation and generations to come. It is with this thought above all that the following pages consider the status and development of health in Alaska, the largest and the least developed of the 50 States.

Abstract
This report provides an overview of the health status of Alaska Native people. By using data to monitor health status, significant improvements in health over time can be demonstrated. In addition, health areas that are a concern, or for which a disparity exists, can be readily identified. This report covers population demographics, leading causes of mortality and morbidity, as well as adolescent and adult lifestyle risk factors. Additional health status topics include maternal and child health, cancer and cancer screening, immunizations, diabetes, infectious diseases, environmental health, and dental health. At the end of this report, the reader will find region-specific health status overviews and how each region compares to the Alaska Native population statewide on selected measures.

Abstract
Ethnic minorities (e.g., Hispanics, blacks, Asian-Americans, and Native Americans) are still underrepresented in alcohol research in the United States. Furthermore, existing studies often do not take into consideration the variability that exists within each ethnic group, resulting in inaccurate generalizations. Studies among Hispanics have found substantial differences among Hispanic subgroups in drinking patterns and rates of alcohol-related problems. Moreover, no single variable can explain the observed patterns. Similarly, numerous factors have been shown to shape drinking patterns among blacks, including individual and environmental characteristics as well as historical and cultural factors. Different subgroups of Asian-Americans also vary substantially in their rates of drinking and heavy drinking, although their lifetime alcohol use is lower than the national average. Genetic and cultural factors, as well as stress and historic experiences, may influence drinking patterns of Asian-Americans. The widely differing drinking patterns among Native Americans also are likely shaped by a variety of influences.

Abstract
The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program addresses levels of environmental chemicals in abiotic and biotic components of the Arctic ecosystem, temporal and spatial trends, the fate of pollutants in the environment, and their effects on the food chain and humans. One of the principal tasks of AMAP continues to be the assessment of implications and impacts of pollution on the health of Arctic residents, residents both indigenous and non-indigenous to the region. The third AMAP Human Health assessment seeks to update the 2002 AMAP Human Health assessment with the latest data and analysis rather than to provide a new independent assessment. The report synthesizes the latest research results from circumpolar countries, building upon previous assessments of environmental chemicals and the variety of their impacts on the health of Arctic populations. Therefore, to benefit most from this work the reader should be familiar with previous assessments.

Abstract
Health care in Canada's north and circumpolar regions faces considerable challenges with the remote and widely dispersed population, harsh environmental conditions, and human resource challenges. Despite per capita expenditures that are among the highest in the world, health outcomes continue to lag behind the rest of Canada, and health disparities between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations within the north persist. While improving the health of northerners requires addressing underlying social determinants, transforming the health care system holds promise for health improvements in the short- and medium-term . The evidence required to inform a northern-focused and relevant transformation of health care systems remains to be generated and applied. This seminar set out to identify priority areas for a research initiative that will address systems challenges and engage decision-makers in these jurisdictions. The overarching objectives of the seminar were to explore the priority areas for health systems research in circumpolar regions, and to propose how we might best maximize our current resources, and facilitate partnerships for the advancement of a common agenda.

Abstract
There is a growing national and international appreciation of the importance of Arctic ecosystems and an increasing knowledge of global pollution and resulting environmental threats. The Arctic is highly sensitive to pollution and much of its human population and culture is directly dependent on the health of the region's ecosystems. Limited sunlight, ice cover that inhibits energy penetration, low mean and extreme temperatures, low species diversity and biological productivity and long-lived organisms with high lipid levels all contribute to the sensitivity of the Arctic ecosystem and cause it to be easily damaged. This vulnerability of the Arctic to pollution requires that action be taken now, or degradation may become irreversible. The governments of the Arctic countries have become increasingly aware of the need for, and their responsibility to combat these threats to the Arctic ecosystem. On the initiative of Finland, the eight Arctic countries of USSR, USA, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, Denmark and Canada have met to prepare a strategy to protect the Arctic environment.
