Community Health Profile 2009 Urban Indian Health Organizations (UIHO) Aggregate Urban Counties


This is one of thirty four community health profiles produced by the Urban Indian Health Institute to examine the health of American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) living in select urban counties. These counties are served by the network of title V urban Indian health organizations across the country. This health profile provides an overview of the health status of the AI/AN population living in the network of Urban Indian Health Organizations. It examines preventable causes of illness, death, access to care, and burden of disease for this urban community. While this report covers key health indicators, not every health concern affecting the AI/AN community is examined. The health indicators covered provide data across two comparison groups: AI/AN and the general population (all race). Because this is an aggregate report, all data presented are national. 13 p.
