Facilitating the Urgent Public Health Need to Improve Data Sharing With Tribal Epidemiology Centers
Tribal epidemiology centers (TECs) are an essential and unique part of the public health system and an important part of federal efforts to improve the health status of American Indian and Alaska Native people. Pursuant to federal statute, TECs serve the 574 federally recognized tribes (hereinafter, “tribes”) and their members across the United States, as well as American Indian and Alaska Native people in general.
