Prevention & Policy

The American Indian Cancer Foundation’s (AICAF) Prevention & Policy Program aims to engage, educate, and empower AI/AN communities to implement healthy lifestyle practices that can help reduce cancer risks in Indian Country. We work with tribes and AI/AN organizations to support these practices through tribal resolutions and policies. 

We utilize culturally-appropriate resources to engage community members and stakeholders to create Policy, Systems, and Environmental (PSE) change in communities. Our current efforts focus on tobacco cessation, healthy eating, and physical activity. Our team provides training and technical assistance to build capacity on many topics including:

  • Tribal Policy, Systems, Environmental (PSE) Change, 
  • Strategies for Indentifying Health Priorities, 
  • Community Engagement, 
  • Coalition Building, 
  • Action Planning, and
  • Tribal Policy Development and Assistance,
