The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) / Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR) Tribal Consultation Policy officially released early in FY 2006 (October, 2005), describes steps that CDC programs should take toward working effectively with AI/AN communities and organizations.  

The policy identifies when CDC programs should involve tribal leaders and outlines specific responsibilities regarding program activities, including mutual participation in setting program and budget priorities.  The policy also provides guidance on enhancing AI/AN access to CDC programs and resources, including those awarded to State health departments. 

As a result of the policy, CDC is consulting more effectively with tribes and is receiving helpful tribal input on a broad range of issues that includes the development of new program announcements, implementation of new or ongoing public health programs, and fostering stronger partnerships between tribes and other CDC partners such as state health departments and academic institutions. 

Implementation of this policy across CDC and ATSDR is ongoing and the implementation process has been enhanced by the establishment of the CDC/ATSDR Tribal Consultation Advisory Committee (TCAC).

The Tribal Consultation Advisory Committee (TCAC) was established as an advisory committee to the CDC Director and ATSDR Administrator in order to provide a complementary venue wherein tribal representatives and CDC staff would exchange information about urgent public health issues in Indian country and collaborate on approaches to address these issues and needs. 

The TCAC assists in strengthening  CDC partnerships with tribes and tribal organizations, and in planning and coordinating upcoming tribal consultation sessions.  The TCAC also provides enhanced connectivity between CDC and tribal leaders through their regional health boards and the National Indian Health Board.  This connectivity will help to ensure that CDC activities or policies that impact Indian country are brought to the attention of tribal leaders as well as CDC senior leadership.

The TCAC meets on a quarterly basis and has set the meeting schedule for 2007-2008 to include two CDC Biannual Consultation Sessions.  During these sessions, tribal leaders from across Indian Country will be invited to dialogue and consult with CDC leadership and program staff.  The first Biannual CDC Tribal Consultation Session is scheduled for October 25th in Atlanta, Georgia.
