Abstract
All biomedical research projects in Greenland must be notified to the Commission for Scientific Research in Greenland for scientific ethical evaluation. The Commission implements the principles of the Second Declaration of Helsinki and is associated with the Danish Scientific Ethical Committee System. The projects are assessed by the medical and the Greenlandic members of the Commission. The Greenlandic members act as lay people in this context. The annual number of biomedical research projects submitted is from ten to fifteen.

Abstract
The socioeconomic classification used in Western societies is not directly applicable to Greenland where other factors, such as success as a hunter, participation in community life, and raising children, also convey status and must be included in a status coding. In the 1993 Greenland Health Interview Survey the participants' hunting activities were estimated through a number of questions. Nineteen percent of male Greenlanders classified themselves as hunters when asked about their primary occupation, but in another question an additional 10% stated that they relied on hunting for a living. When asked about their job, hunters were confused as to whether hunting was considered a job by the researchers. This uncertainty may explain the difference between the two questions regarding classification of individuals as hunters. For future research it is necessary to develop a socioeconomic status classification which is culturally sensitive and suited to contemporary Greenlandic society.

Abstract
Greenland has a population of approximately 55,000 spread over an enormous stretch of coast. Conditions for patient transport are often hostile due to weather and the availability of materials. The health clinics on the coast are wholly dependent on the ability to transport in cases of serious illness or injury, as no manpower or facilities for intensive treatment or care exist outside of populated centers. A large proportion of the population lives far away from the centers, and due to their closeness to nature, these people have a high incidence of injuries. For these reasons, installation of the highest possible level of technological knowledge transfer seems highly appropriate. However, technology proficiency on the part of health personnel in the outlying areas is low; indeed, the level of reading skills is not satisfactory in all cases. There is furthermore a significant language barrier. The case for telemedicine in this setting is clear in technical terms, but murky at best in the manpowersense. The final argument will be financial means, which must be found by savings in other settings, e.g., evacuations and treatment in distant settings. A current effort to increase the information base to support decision making in this sphere is presented.

Abstract
In 1993-94, a countrywide health interview survey was performed in 38 towns and villages throughout Greenland. Information was collected on self-rated health and self-reported disease, social and cultural factors, lifestyle, and living conditions. A total of 1,580 adult Greenlanders and 148 Danes was interviewed (57% of the sample). Respondents were classified according to ethnic self-identification and job category, but these customary classifications were not satisfactory. An alternative classification according to exposure to traditional Greenlandic hunting culture and Danish culture during childhood was tested. The population fell into three subgroups, each with its own socioeconomic, ethnic, and occupational pattern, and with different health and health behavior. The new classification has distinct advantages as a supplement to the usual classification according to ethnicity and job category. The aim of the present paper is to present a comprehensive health interview survey from Greenland andto discuss some considerations regarding sociocultural classification of the population.
