The Arctic health was the main topic at an expert meeting of the Arctic Council held in Oulu this May. The need for drawing attention to health issues was recognized as an impor tant par t of the international Arctic co-operation. Environmental pollutants in the Arctic as health risk factors will be discussed during the AMAP-collaboration. Also climatic physical factors in the Arctic as health risks are in focus as regards the Arctic Climatic Impact Assessment (ACIA). Global surveillance of HIV and tuberculosis in the Arctic has also star ted. A similar kind of surveillance should also find its place as regards injuries, infectious and chronic diseases. This basic information on nor thern health is vital so that proper health care practices could be established. To promote these activities co-operation with health and well-being professionals and officials in different countries is important; active participation at the grass- root level is also valuable when setting priorities concerning health and well-being in the entire circumpolar area. This Journal offers a forum for well grounded opinions when it comes to the needs and practices of the future cooperation.(Int J Circumpolar Health 2002; 61(3):187-188)
