New toolkit for strengthening Tribal public health partnerships
Tribal nations and individual tribal members work hard to protect and promote the health of their communities, and have developed significant public health expertise. The University of Washington's Northwest Center for Public Health Practice's (NWCPHP) new resource, Collaborate with Tribes: A Public Health Toolkit, provides non-tribal public health professionals with an introduction to this expertise, and offers resources to partner with tribes and tribal members.
Toolkit highlights include an example of a successful collaboration between tribes, state, and local jurisdictions in Washington State for emergency preparedness and an introduction to data issues prioritized by tribes and tribal members. As non-tribal public health leaders look for new and sustainable ways to address complex health issues, meaningfully and consistently collaborating with tribal nations is a crucial component of those efforts.
