Tribal Leaders Resources

Materials for Tribal Leadership

Theme(s):
COVID-19 Response

The Center for American Indian Health has created resources that comprise a toolkit designed with and for tribal communities to aid in the prevention of COVID-19 and strengthen community capacity to cope with the pandemic. In general, these tools are evidence-based solutions that can be adapted to local contexts, and free for your use. There are nine components to the toolkit. New materials will be posted on this page. For more information, please email Olivia Trujillo, Training Program Coordinator at the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health. 

Data Interpretation is a useful tool to directly analyze local data and monitor trends in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths, and testing over time. This can provide critical data to inform the Tribal Council’s decision-making about when and how to loosen or implement COVID-19 related restrictions. This tool can be used in conjunction with the Data Reporting document.

Data Reporting files create a tiered approach to disseminate data. These tiers:

  • Describe the current burden of COVID-19 infections and current testing patterns 
  • Monitor trends in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths, and testing over time 
  • Provide data to inform the Tribal Council’s decision-making about when and how to loosen or implement COVID-19 related restrictions
