The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) represents Tribal governments - both those that operate their own health care delivery systems through contracting and compacting, and those receiving health care directly from the Indian Health Service (IHS).
Located in Washington DC on Capitol Hill, the NIHB, a non-profit organization, provides a variety of services to tribes, Area Health Boards, Tribal organizations, federal agencies, and private foundations, including:
Policy Formation and Analysis
Legislative and Regulatory Tracking
Direct and Timely Communication with Tribes
Research on Indian Health Issues
Program Development and Assessment
Training and Technical Assistance Programs
