  • Description:
    The first U.S. Public Health Service office in Alaska, the Arctic Health Research Center, was founded in 1950 to investigate and respond to health problems in Alaska. In 1973, the infectious disease laboratory and research activities of this Center were transferred to CDC. The new Arctic Investigations Program (AIP) was established to support the Indian Health Service (IHS) and the State of Alaska in fighting infectious diseases. AIP is physically located on the Alaska Native Medical Center campus in Anchorage, and organizationally located within the Division of Preparedness and Emerging Infections (DPEI) in CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Disease (NCEZID).

    The CDC Arctic Investigations Program has adopted the following top five Priorities for the period 2016–2020:

    • Reduce the burden of disease and health disparities among Alaskans caused by respiratory infections, Helicobacter pylori gastric infections, viral hepatitis, and emerging invasive or antimicrobial-resistant infections.

    • Strengthen infectious disease monitoring in the circumpolar north through enhancements to laboratory-based surveillance, use of electronic health records and biorepositories, and collaborations such as the International Circumpolar Surveillance system.

    • Support efforts to improve access to in-home water and sanitation services for circumpolar populations.

    • Provide leadership for domestic and international activities to promote improvements in health and well-being among indigenous populations in the Arctic region and the U.S.

    • Respond to infectious disease threats to Arctic and sub-Arctic populations caused by the rapidly changing climate and environment.
