Welcome!

The Arctic Health website is a central source for information on diverse aspects of the Arctic environment and the health of northern peoples. The site gives access to evaluated health information from hundreds of local, state, national, and international agencies, as well as from professional societies and universities. In addition, our own always expanding Arctic Health Publications Database, (currently more than 250,000 records), can help you find Arctic-specific articles, out of print publications and information from special collections held in the Alaska Medical Library.

The Arctic Health website is sponsored by the National Library of Medicine's Division of Specialized Information Services and maintained by the University of Alaska Anchorage's Alaska Medical Library.
