Our mission is to provide information about the literature on prevention and treatment interventions for Native communities*.  Pursuing this goal will enhance the delivery of public health services and advance intervention research for Native peoples.


  • Develop a review process and website for sharing information on preventing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) in Native communities (pilot).

  • Collaborate with Native community public health and research professionals to review prevention and treatment strategies for other alcohol problems within Native communities.

*e.g., American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islanders and other indigenous people of the United States
