Comprehensive Approach to Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country

 

Purpose

 

In 2014, the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc., (ITCA) was awarded a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grant titled, “A Comprehensive Approach to Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country”. The purpose of the grant is to assist American Indian communities in preventing chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and associated risk factors, in their communities. Through this grant ITCA will provide leadership, resources, technical assistance and training to American Indian tribes in Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. By providing these services, ITCA will assist tribes in implementing a variety of effective community-chosen and culturally adapted policies, systems, and environmental changes targeting one or more seven prevention areas listed below.

 

Seven Prevention Areas

1. Reduce the usage of commercial tobacco and decrease exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke;

2. Increase access to and consumption of healthy food and beverages including fruits, vegetables, and water;

3. Increase promotion of alternatives to less healthy foods and beverages that are in high sodium, sugars and solid fats;

4. Increase support for breastfeeding;

5. Increase opportunities for physical activity;

6. Increase health literacy;

7. Strengthen team-based care and community linkages to promote healthy communities
