Mission Statement

One Voice affirming and empowering American Indian and Alaska Native Peoples to protect and improve health and reduce health disparities.

Description

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) represents Tribal governments--both those that operate their own health care delivery systems through contracting and compacting, and those receiving health care directly from the Indian Health Service (IHS).

Located in Washington DC on Capitol Hill, the NIHB, a non-profit organization, provides a variety of services to tribes, Area Health Boards, Tribal organizations, federal agencies, and private foundations, including:

  • Advocacy
  • Policy Formation and Analysis
  • Legislative and Regulatory Tracking
  • Direct and Timely Communication with Tribes
  • Research on Indian Health Issues
  • Program Development and Assessment
  • Training and Technical Assistance Programs
  • Project Management

The NIHB continually presents the Tribal perspective while monitoring federal legislation, and opening opportunities to network with other national health care organizations to engage their support on Indian health care issues. The only organization of its kind; dedicated to strengthening healthcare for all AI/ANs.
