Collaborative Efforts with US Minorities
While NCUIH is always mindful of the special political designation for American Indians and Alaska Natives, the legislative department recognizes that the case for Indian health is stronger with more allies. Thus we work with a wide range of non-Indian organizations from the National Council of La Raza to NNACP, Health Care for American Now! (HCAN), etc. These partnerships helps Indian people project our voice into debates where we would otherwise be unable to have our voices heard, such as the struggle for comprehensive national health care reform. In many situations our partnerships and allies helped get Indian people a seat at the table where it would have been otherwise convenient to ignore Indian communities.
Collaborative Efforts with Other National Agencies
NCUIH is proud to share our database with other agencies in order to better serve our population at large. We are pleased to be able to share with you the information from the National Library of Medicine's American Indian Health Web Portal. Here you can find information that has been collected by NLM that is tailored to be AI/AN health specific. For more information about NLM AIH Web Portal please (click here).
