The Tribal Epidemiology Subcommittee consists of epidemiologists and others working with American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) in state, local, territorial, and tribal health agencies and epidemiology centers. For the past 10 years, CSTE has been successful in bringing together key players for public health surveillance, health data sharing, and public health authority in Indian Country despite more complex issues surrounding the responsibility for public health services for AI/AN populations.CSTE has conducted assessments of tribally-operated and urban Indian health care facilities to assess their case reporting practices and to identify barriers to tribe and provider participation in public health surveillance. The 2009 assessment of epidemiology capacity included questions on tribal epidemiology; a brief summary of the tribal epidemiology results also includes recommendations for improvement.
