Abstract
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food security as "consistent, dependable access by all members [of a family] at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life" (1). In the arctic, food (in)security refers to 3 distinct discourses: the threat climate change poses to subsistence foods, the threat disasters pose to reliable supplies of southern foods and the threat poverty poses to the ability to purchase healthy food. In this study, poverty-related hunger is the focus. We report findings from interviews with urban Alaskans who use food pantries. In partnership with Food Bank of Alaska, Alaska's state-wide charitable anti-hunger organisation, we expand on the statistical findings of the 2010 Anchorage Hunger Study (2), which is part of a national US descriptive study of people who use pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters.

Abstract
In Canada, food insecurity is much higher among Aboriginal households than non-Aboriginal households and is especially pronounced in northern and isolated communities. The First Nations Food, Nutrition and Environment Study (FNFNES) found that 41% of on-reserve British Columbia First Nations households. were food insecure in 2008-2009 and that 38% of onreserve Manitoba First Nations households were food insecure in 2010. These prevalence rates are more than 5 times higher than those found among non-Aboriginal households in both provinces in the 2007-2008 Canadian Community Health Survey (1 ,2). Across the Canadian Arctic in 2007- 2008, 63% of Inuit households were found to be food insecure, with almost half (29%) severely food insecure (3).

Abstract
The stakeholder engagement process frequently documents community concern over the potential project-related impacts to subsistence activities (1). Potential impacts included changes to quantity, quality (actual and perceived) and access to subsistence resources. The environmental impact assessment process typically develops detailed subsistence resource maps that focus on geography (resource footprint versus the project footprint) and density (the quantity of the resource within a defined footprint). Community harvesting practices are often assessed. Social impact assessment work, including "traditional and local knowledge" surveys is an equally important tool that contributes to the critical role of subsistence activities in local communities. However, while both the environmental and social surveys are useful for the health impact assessment (2), we have found that these data are potentially insufficient for fully analysing and categorising potential human health impacts from large extractive industry projects (3).

Abstract
From an infectious disease perspective, we live in a borderless world. In a span of hours, globalisation brings together people, animals and cargo that were once thousands of miles apart. Residents of the state of Alaska know this well, as the state receives international passengers and goods by air, land and sea. An inevitable consequence of modern transportation in Alaska - and elsewhere - is that it brings large numbers of people together in close proximity, thereby increasing the risk of spread of pathogens. This abstract is an overview of border public health emergency preparedness and response activities in Alaska, and a call for additional planning among the Circumpolar Region member states of Canada, Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the United States and Russia.

Abstract
In the face of global warming, budgetary austerity and impoverished Arctic residents, the nations of the circumpolar region are presented with a number of difficult choices regarding the provision of health care to the far-flung and isolated regions of their northernmost provinces. Complicating that picture is the reality of neglected tropical diseases in areas far from their perceived normal equatorial range as well as endemic food-borne diseases, including protozoan and helminth parasites, respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases and vaccine-preventable illnesses. This paper discusses the problems of caring for the health and well-being of indigenous populations suffering from extreme poverty, isolation and discrimination in the circumpolar region. After presenting difficulties as supported by the extant literature, the paper continues by suggesting solutions that include novel telenursing applications, targeted distance-educational programs and local community-based health care assistant (HCA) vocational training. These programs will provide cost-effective care that increases life-spans, improves quality of life and provides opportunities to distressed populations in isolated rural communities of the Far North. The toolkit presented in the paper is intended to spur discussion on community health programs that could be adopted to provide proper and humane care for marginalized Arctic populations in an extreme and rapidly changing environment.
