Abstract
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this paper is to give the reader some idea of life in Siberia and Alaska during the creation of our first medical exchanges during the most difficult of political times. STUDY DESIGN: Various projects were designed using National Institutes of Health (NIH) criteria for our medical exchange. METHODS: As we took these first steps between the Siberian Branch of the Academy of Medical Sciences of the USSR and the Institute for Circumpolar Health Studies at the University of Alaska Anchorage, USA, the general areas of our first studies were: 1) Circadian Rhythm and Work-Related Injuries in the North; 2) Alcohol and its Abuse with Treatment Methodologies; 3) Public Health Administration and Design in the Far East and Alaska; 4) Cystic Echinococcosis in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic; 5) Viral Hepatitis in the Arctic; 6) Cardiology; 7) Nutrition; and 7) Diabetes Prevention. RESULTS: A film made by the University of Alaska which was shown on PBS' "Breaking the Ice: The Alaska-SiberiaMedical Research Program"; various papers and books published on both sides; and a major contribution made to world peace through the medical workers on both sides of the Bering Sea. CONCLUSION: This major effort for peace showed the world how the peoples of Siberia and Alaska could come together and work for world peace through joint collaborations. Native people were reunited after years of separation, new avenues were created in anthropology, biology and medicine and, subsequently, the border was again opened between our peoples.

Abstract
PURPOSE: To design a health care program that allows Alaska Natives to receive culturally appropriate health services in their homes, thus avoiding the trauma of institutionalization and significantly increasing the quality of the patient's life during the course of the treated illness. METHOD: Utilizing the culturally appropriate sensitivity that is found within Tribal Health Corporations, Southcentral Foundation is designing a federally based community health care model to bring health support services into the patient's home. Health Aides and Community Health Representatives play an important role in extending this model into an urban community setting. The cost of care is significantly reduced, as it is more cost-effective to keep patients in their own home environments rather than in institutions. RESULTS: Major outcomes for patients are increased cultural sensitivity to their needs, personal comfort, dignity, and care in their own home surroundings. Outcomes for the federal care system are significant savings and more efficient personalized health care.
