The National Indian Health Board is leading a national effort to advocate and secure resources for Tribes to respond to COVID-19. NIHB seeks to ensure that the Tribes remain informed on COVID 19, have the resources and assistance needed to respond to the pandemic, and that the Congress and Administration understand and address Tribal needs and priorities.  NIHB also aims to create resources that will be informative and helpful to Tribes and Tribal members.  NIHB believes that this coordinated national response is part of its sacred mission to serve the Tribes and help maintain the safety and well-being of Tribal citizens.

NIHB is pleased to release a video message from our Board of Directors about the COVID-19 pandemic and NIHB’s advocacy and efforts to bring resources to Tribes during this difficult time.
