American Indian Alaska Native Heritage Month
Health challenges facing AI/AN communities include cancer, diabetes, environmental contamination, heart disease, injuries, sexually transmitted diseases, sudden infant death syndrome, vaccine-preventable diseases, and viral hepatitis. To address these disparities, CDC and ATSDR work with tribal governments, tribal organizations, urban Indian health centers, IHS, and other partners to provide funding and technical assistance to tribal governments and organizations.
