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.
