Spirit of Community Health: Final Report

The purpose of this study was to begin to create an evidence base around how tribes organize and partner to deliver public health services to protect and promote the health of their communities. The study aimed to explore the partnerships within one selected tribal public health system that protected and promoted health by examining how and through what relationships this tribal public health system delivered public health services, and by assessing the key characteristics of this system that addressed health disparities. The study used a case study design to enable deep and rich understanding of one tribal public health system.
