Advocating for the health of American Indians and Alaska Natives living in urban settings.
The National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) is a U.S.-based nonprofit organization devoted to the support and development of quality, accessible and culturally competent health and public health services for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) living in urban settings. NCUIH is the only American organization that advocates for the health of urban AI/ANs. For more than 25 years, NCUIH has provided critically needed technical assistance, training, policy support and other services to Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs) throughout the United States.
Through its educational activities, NCUIH aims to create and disseminate quality information to health care professionals in Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs) and increase cultural competency. One such example is the NCUIH Native Healthcast on the AMA Ed Hub. Created in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Project Firstline, the podcast covers how to support frontline health care workers and team members in building their infection prevention and control knowledge and understanding. Even if you are not part of a UIO, any physician, health care worker, medical student or resident in training will benefit from learning more about the unique role UIOs play in serving the diverse indigenous population in the U.S.
