Tribal Injury Prevention Cooperative Agreement Program

The purpose of this Indian Health Service (IHS) cooperative agreement is to address the disparity in injury rates by encouraging Tribes to implement focused, community-based injury prevention programs and projects using evidence-based strategies.

Injury prevention evidence-based strategies are


prevention methods that have been scientifically evaluated and proven to prevent injuries, including strategic changes to the environment (for example, roadways, elder homes for fall hazards, smoke alarms) and strategies to promote behavior change (such as car seat use, float coat use).

Injury prevention programs and projects are most effective when based on these model practices.

The use of well-planned, promising, and innovative injury prevention strategies is also recommended.Nationally, the leading causes of AI/AN unintentional injury deaths are due to motor vehicle crashes (Trends in Indian Health 2017 Edition, IHS, Division of Program Statistics) and falls are a leading cause of hospitalization for older adults (ages 55+) in several IHS Areas.

Motor vehicle related injuries and elder falls are priority areas of the IHS Injury Prevention Program (IPP).
