The Arizona Department of Health Services allocated 10% of H1N1 vaccine and preparedness funding to tribal healthcare providers in response to large numbers of hospitalizations and deaths among American Indians.
This practice contains materials that formed the basis of a community outreach project among 22 American Indian tribes in New Mexico. These materials include a PowerPoint presentation that was used to give tribal members talking points about pandemic influenza and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Health Department and an unspecified tribe. Tribal preparedness is a significant component of overall preparedness, especially in the American Southwest and Plains states.
