Public Health

KAI supports a wide range of projects supporting public health capacity and expertise in tribal and urban Indian communities. KAI understands the responsibility that tribes and tribal epidemiology centers hold as public health authorities. KAI also understands the challenges that tribes face when working across local public health jurisdictions and at different levels of jurisdiction from the state and federal government. KAI’s public health team has extensive experience working in tribal and urban Indian communities delivering public health services. KAI’s public health team takes a unique approach, using an Indigenized model of the 10 essential public health services and social determinants of health so they are more applicable and cultural relevant.
