The intent of this program is to assist in public health infrastructure improvement; workforce development; tribal data and information systems enhancement, including surveillance; and development and adaptation of evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions to increase the long-term sustainability of the collective tribal public health system.

  • Increased implementation of tools and processes that build operational capacity and effectiveness.
  • Increased use of core and discipline-specific public health competencies among public health workers.
