CDC and Indian Country working together
Corporate Authors:Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
Description:Welcome to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and a snapshot of CDC’s work in Indian Country, with tribal nations, tribal organizations, and American Indians and Alaska Natives across the United States.
CDC’s Tribal Advisory Committee (TAC) asked CDC to prepare a booklet describing our organization and the work we do in Indian Country as part of our broad portfolio to improve health and protect against health threats here at home and around the world.
The TAC advises CDC/ATSDR (Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry) on policy issues and broad strategies that may significantly affect American Indian and Alaska Native communities. The TAC collaborates with CDC/ATSDR in fulfilling its mission to promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability through established and ongoing relationships and consultation sessions. The TAC consists of 16 voluntary representatives: 1 delegate (and 1 authorized representative) from a federally recognized tribe geographically located in each of the 12 Indian Health Service Areas, and 1 delegate (and 1 authorized representative) from 4 federally recognized tribes-at-large. The TAC convenes twice each year, during the winter at CDC headquarters and during the summer hosted by a tribal nation.
