The mission of the American Indian Public Health Resource Center (AIPHRC) is to address American Indian public health disparities through technical assistance, policy development, self-determination feasibility analysis, education, research, and programming in partnership with tribes, in North Dakota, across the Northern Plains, and the nation. 

Our vision is engaging and partnering with tribes to improve the delivery of culturally appropriate public health services and functions in American Indian communities.  The AIPHRC is enabled by a multifaceted program and team approach to assist each tribe in their service priorities. At the heart of the AIPHRC’s philosophy is respect for tribal authority, autonomy, and self-determination. 

The AIPHRC’s goal is to build capacity and support community driving projects by providing culturally responsive technical assistance utilizing a four-pronged approach to public health that includes public health services, research, education, and policy. The AIPHRC also provides Indigenous Evaluation training and resources for tribal nations, agencies, and government entities.
