The IHS is working to increase collaboration within the health care system by ensuring our work, in partnership with Tribal leaders, helps create safer communities.
It is vital that health care providers consider the linkages with social services, schools, criminal justice, and youth programs.
Working in collaboration helps to increase support for blended funding streams, sharing infrastructure, building capacity, and bringing resources to where people, live, learn, work, and play.
The IHS has two grant programs that focus on reducing risk factors: the Domestic Violence Prevention Program (DVPP) and the Substance Abuse and Suicide Prevention Program (SASP).
The DVPP funds 83 projects that deliver community-based violence prevention programs to combat domestic and sexual violence.
