Indoor Air Quality in Tribal Communities

November 29, 2017 hiadmin

American Indian and Native Alaskan communities may be disproportionately affected by health problems associated with poor indoor air quality, such as lung cancer. However, many actions can be taken to improve IAQ in tribal communities to slowly begin to change those statistics.

This Website can help you improve IAQ in your tribal community. You can find information to educate your community about the simple actions they can take to improve their IAQ and protect their health, as well as examples of how other tribes have created sustainable community outreach and education programs.
