Building Public Health Infrastructure in Tribal Communities to Accelerate Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in Indian Country

This 5-year program, launched in September 2017, seeks to increase the capacity of Tribal Epidemiology Centers to deliver public health functions to and with the tribes/villages in their Indian Health Service Area (including the Urban Area). The program intends to contribute to reductions in chronic diseases and risk factors, reductions in disparities in health outcomes, and improvements in overall health by building public health capacity and infrastructure in Indian Country for disease surveillance, epidemiology; prevention and control of disease, injury, or disability; and program monitoring and evaluation. With $8.5 million in Fiscal Year 2017 funds, CDC will support 12 Tribal Epidemiology Centers and one Network Coordinating Center. The Network Coordinating Center, the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, will coordinate the evaluation of this initiative and provide project organization, logistics, communication, and performance evaluation support for the funded Tribal Epidemiology Centers.

See the Notice of Funding Opportunity.
