Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country (2019-2024): Strengthening Indigenous Wisdom and Resiliency


This webpage outlines the Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country (GHWIC) project. GHWIC is a five-year funding initiative available to federally recognized tribes and Alaska Native villages, Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs), and Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TECs) from across the United States. Funds support AI/AN chronic disease prevention and overall community wellness. The GHWIC initiative includes a combination of policy and environmental approaches, linkages between community programs and clinical services, and health systems interventions designed to increase purchasing of healthy foods, increase breastfeeding, reduce the prevalence of commercial tobacco use, and reduce incidence of type 2 diabetes, among other focus areas.
