Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TECs) were established in 1996 under the reauthorization of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA) amid growing concern about the lack of adequate public health surveillance and data for disease control for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations. Currently, there are 12 TECs across the US that provide a variety of services in partnership with other public health authorities including surveillance and technical assistance. This presentation will focus on the Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center programs how these programs contribute to solving AI/AN health disparities and strengthening public health capacity within tribal communities in New Mexico, Southern Colorado and Western Texas.
