The National Congress of American Indians Policy Research Center, in partnership with the National Indian Health Board and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is currently conducting a scan of Tribal Public Health Laws and Policies in Indian Country to identify priorities and gaps. Specifically, NCAI is working to develop a Tribal Public Health Law database, information on existing Public Health Laws in Indian Country and toolkit materials with model codes and other guidance to tribes invested in improving their Tribal Public Health Law infrastructure, implementation, and enforcement towards strengthening community health and wellness. Aggregated responses will also be shared with project partners the National Indian Health Board and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (project funder). NCAI plans to launch a Public Health Law database in June 2013.
This questionnaire is for all individuals involved with or interested in Tribal Public Health. American Indian and Alaska Native tribal leaders, American Indian and Alaska Native community members, government agencies, tribal epidemiology centers, and non-profits are key partners in improving the health of our tribal communities.
