At meetings in Albuquerque, NM, in May 2008 and September 2013, the CSTE Tribal Epidemiology Subcommittee identified a series of actions and recommendations to improve public health surveillance in Indian Country. Among these was the need to encourage data-sharing between state/local health departments and tribal entities. This toolkit of resources and best practices is a direct result of that recommendation and is geared for those needing to access health data as part of broader efforts to improve the health of AIAN populations.
Toolkit authors hope this resource will provide useful guidance for working with tribal health data and with the entities responsible for that data. By highlighting data-sharing best practices and issues pertaining to data quality, the toolkit is intended to improve public health surveillance in Indian Country, so authorities may better address health inequities and enhance collaboration among state, federal and tribal partners.
