This report provides a snapshot of CDC's work in Indian Country, with tribal nations, tribal organizations, and American Indians and Alaska Natives across the United States. The CDC's Tribal Advisory Committee (TAC) asked CDC to prepare a booklet highlighting the work being done in Indian Country as part of a broader portfolio to improve health and protect against health threats. American Indians and Alaska Natives have higher rates of disease, injury, and premature death than other racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Many Native populations also have higher rates of poverty, unemployment, poor housing, and low education, among other adversities. These afflictions result from historical insults and injustices, perpetrated over many generations.

CDC’s work with and support of Indian Country to improve the lives of Native peoples is reflected in this report.
