Public Health Laws in Indian Country – Exercising Sovereignty to Improve Health

March 2013

  • What is this Project? This project will scan public health laws in American Indian/Alaska Native communities to identify priorities and gaps. Specifically, this project will: 1) Provide information on existing public health laws in Indian Country; 2) Recognize tribal authority to regulate public health ; and 3) Enhance understanding of tribal public health law for RWJF network and partners.
  • What is the Role of Public Health Law?
  • Provide mechanism to exercise authority (via the development of rules, regulations, policies, and procedures by codifying, implementing, and enforcing laws and policies)
  • Build infrastructure
  • Establish a legal framework to prepare for emergencies
  • Establish a coordinated effort to respond to public health concerns
  • Prioritize public health issues not currently addressed
  • Engage with data to improve health and save lives
  • Who are the Key Partners? The audience includes tribal leaders, American Indian and Alaska Native community members, government agencies, tribal epidemiology centers, and non-profits.
  • What Resources will be Available from this Project?
