American Indian Research Center for Health (AIRCH)

AIRCH is a collaborative project between the Inter-Tribal Council of Arizona (ITCA) and the University of Arizona (UA) to encourage practical research that improves the health status of American Indian people, increases the number of American Indian scientists and health professionals engaged in research, educates non-Indians about the need for culturally appropriate health research within American Indian communities and research institutions, and includes Tribes as stakeholders in the processes of conducting research on their reservations and in the dissemination of the research findings. The ITCA-UA partnership has been awarded three rounds of AIRCH funding, with projects in place since 2003.
