Policy & Advocacy

ANHB monitors health policy issues at the federal and state levels that affect Alaska Native people. ANHB takes action by providing comments and testimony to governing bodies, writing letters, participating in agency meetings, and developing collaborative relationships with organizations interested in Alaska Native health care. Undertaking state and federal advocacy efforts remains one of the most important roles of ANHB. In this process, ANHB works with state and federal agencies, elected officials and industry partners to advocate for the health and well-being of American Indian and Alaska Native people.
