Tribal Injury Prevention Program

The long term goal of the AAIHB and AASTEC 10-year injury prevention program is to reduce the burden of unintentional injuries related to older adult falls and motor vehicle crashes among American Indian communities in our service area. With an emphasis upon approaches that weave together evidence-based strategies at the community, policy, system and environmental levels increasing the ability of tribes to address their injury problems, advancing the health and wellness of the AI/AN population throughout our service area.

Older Adult Fall Prevention objectives:

  • Assistance and training implementing evidence-based fall prevention, assessments, and balance and strength exercise
  • Decrease older adult falls with injuries by collaborating with Tribal partners to implement Home Assessment and Hazards Corrections
  • General Injury Prevention objectives:

  • Foster collaboration and networking, and share resources and expertise for addressing injuries within area tribes
  • Share and develop culturally appropriate small media
  • Motor vehicle related Injury objectives:

  • To increase the proportion of children under 13 years of age riding in car seats
  • Continue to provide Child Safety Seat Installations, Inspections, and Education

  • Albuquerque Area Tribal Injury Prevention Coalition
