Zika 101 Informational Guide for Tribes

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) has developed an educational guide to provide basic information and resources about Zika as a starting place for Tribes wanting to learn more and work to address Zika prevention and response in their communities. Preventing and preparing for Zika transmission can protect the health of Native families and communities. This guide contains information about Zika virus, Zika testing, and mosquitoes, as well as case-studies showing examples and a list of Zika resources from partners.

Posters and Brochures

The National Indian Health Board has developed posters and brochures addressing Zika virus in Tribal communities. These materials are available below for you to print or download. Materials described as “fillable” have text boxes where you can enter your own contact information – for example, for your health facility. Materials with “web links” have clickable hyperlinks which work well if you plan to share the materials online with your community.

Tribal, State, and Local Zika Collaboration Meeting Resources

The National Indian Health Board, in collaboration with Area Indian Health Boards and with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has hosted several state-specific meetings to address Zika virus and other vector-borne disease and discuss Tribal, state, and local collaboration and ways to foster improved partnerships. These meetings included panels, workshops, discussions, information about additional resources, and opportunities to make connections and build relationships through the event. These meetings also included some presentations and resources that can be shared out with the public more easily. Please see below for a collection of resources and presentations from each meeting. These presentations and resources are intended to benefit Tribal, state, and local representatives who were unable to attend – from these states and from other states – and to share information about NIHB’s work. Note that some information may be state-specific but other information is more widely applicable.

Resources from Zika Champions in Indian Country – NIHB Funding Awardee Creations

In summer 2017, the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) announced a funding opportunity that would provide Tribes and Tribal organizations with up to $5000 to tackle high impact, capacity building activities to prepare for the possibility of Zika transmission in Tribal communities. Three awardees received funding: Bishop Paiute Tribe (California), Indian Health Council (California), and Kaw Nation (Oklahoma). These Tribal champions completed work to address this critical threat in creative ways within their communities, finishing their projects at the end of April 2018. As part of their work, these Tribes created some resources or project deliverables which may benefit other Tribal communities or serve as an example for Tribes beginning to create their own materials. Sharing these materials is also an opportunity for NIHB to highlight the work of these Tribal champions!
