Abstract
During the period 1957-1964, 69 cases of purulent meningitis were treated at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital in Bethel, Alaska, a 65-bed facility serving about 10,000 Eskimos and Indians in the remote Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta area. Nearly two-thirds of the patients were infants, among whom the case fatality rate was 37.2%, compared with the overall fatality rate of 30.4%. In 52% of the cases no causative organism could be demonstrated on smear or culture. Of the bacteriologically positive cases, one-third were due to pneumococci and one-third to meningococci. Prognosis was not affected by previous treatment or recovery of the organism. Since 1957, an annual average of one out of 74 infants in the area has had purulent meningitis; one out of 200 has died of the disease. Chronic otitis media, poor nutrition, a high incidence of respiratory disease and the relative inaccessibility of medical care are significant factors.

Abstract
Behavioral risk factors are associated with the ten leading causes of death in the United States and Alaska. Surveillance of behavioral risk factors allows us to monitor trends in health behavior and particularly enables us to measure progress toward reaching the "Healthy People 2000 Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives" for the nation. It can also provide the basis for launching and evaluating programs designed to reduce the prevalence of unhealthy behaviors and attain Year 2000 health goals. The CDC initiated the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1984, by which 17 states began collecting behavioral risk data through monthly telephone surveys. The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System was implemented in Alaska in 1990. Each month, 128 adults ages 18 and older are interviewed regarding their health and day-to-day living habits. This report contains the 1994 survey results. These surveys were conducted from January through December 1994, for a total sample size of 1,535 interviews. The Division of Public Health BRFSS continues to conduct monthly telephone surveys each year.

Abstract
The Alaska Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System is a collaborative project with the CDC and the Alaska Division of Public Health. The BRFSS is the longest running and largest telephone health survey in the world. Through a series of monthly telephone interviews, uniform data are collected on preventive health practices and risky behaviors that contribute to chronic disease, injuries, and preventable diseases that are among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Healthy People 2010 is a scientific research system based on over 190 health surveillance and data systems, which include the BRFSS. Alaska has established state targets within the framework of the national Healthy People objectives to address Alaska's specific health status, prevention priorities, and objectives. Healthy Alaskans 2010 was published in 2002 and serves as the structure for health policy development. In Alaska, seven of the ten leading health indicators for the 2010 goals are assessed with the BRFSS.

Abstract
The Alaska Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System is a collaborative project with the CDC and the Alaska Division of Public Health. Alaska's data are combined with all other states and U.S. territories participating in this surveillance system. The BRFSS data have proven to be instrumental in formulating policy, proposing legislation for health initiatives, and focusing resources on emergent and critical health concerns. Healthy People 2010 is a scientific research system based on over 190 health surveillance and data systems, which includes the BRFSS. Alaska has established state targets within the framework of the national Healthy People objectives to address Alaska's specific health status, prevention priorities, and objectives.

Abstract
The national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) to monitor state-level prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature morbidity and mortality. Data are collected on risk and preventive behaviors and chronic disease prevalence that are especially useful for planning, initiating, supporting, and evaluating health promotion and disease prevention programs. The State of Alaska began the BRFSS in 1991 as a point-in-time study and has continued yearly since. The Alaska BRFSS is a collaborative project between the CDC and the Alaska Division of Public Health. Alaska?s data are combined with all other states and U.S. territories participating in surveillance to provide national estimates.
