Alaska Native Health Resource Advocate Program. Created in 1997, the Alaska Native Health Resource Advocate Program (ANHRAP) was developed to meet the information and referral needs of Alaska Native people in the continental United States.

Not from our service area?

If you are from outside Southcentral Foundation's Anchorage Service Unit, you receive your primary care in your village or regional hub. You are also eligible for specialty referral and inpatient care at the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) hospital in Anchorage. If visiting Anchorage from another area of Alaska and in need of primary care services, ANMC does offer brief "urgent care". You may be seen in the Emergency Department (Fast Track), or make an appointment to visit Internal Medicine (for adults) or Outpatient Pediatrics (for children). Our goal is to do what is needed while you are visiting, but have your main primary care be with providers who are familiar with you in your home community.
