Indian Health Service asks tribes about community health aides

 


A program that has proven successful in Alaska is poised to become a nationwide model within the Indian Health Service.

The community health aide program was created to address the unique concerns of remote and rural Native villages in Alaska. The most prominent examples are the dental therapists who provide key services that would otherwise not be available to local residents.

The IHS is hoping to build on that success by expanding the community health aide program throughout Indian Country. Tribes are being asked for their views on a draft policy that could bring more services to their members.
