ANEC Success Story: Healthy Alaskans 2030

Success Stories, TEC News
Healthy Alaskans provides a framework for health improvement. Every decade, the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) and Alaska Department of Health work together to identify the state’s health priorities and set new targets. The team released its first annual scorecards showing progress made toward reaching the goals of Healthy Alaskans 2030 –the statewide health improvement plan outlining health outcomes for Alaska to reach by the year 2030.

Using data compiled and analyzed by ANTHC’s Alaska Native Epidemiology Center (ANEC), the most recent progress summary on Healthy Alaskans 2030 objectives (for 2018-2021 data) shared that of the 30 health objectives listed on the Alaska Native population scorecard one met or surpassed the target (“Percentage of adults who could not afford to see a doctor in the last 12 months,” which went down from 15.3% in 2018 to 88.1% in 2019), 11 others showed improvement from baseline.


Healthy Alaskans is the only state health improvement plan in the nation co-led by a state and Tribal partnership and, as stated by Valerie Nurr’araluk Davidson, President/CEO of ANTHC, “These achievements translate into safer and healthier kids, stronger families, and vibrant communities.”
