Best Practices, Promising Practices, and Local Efforts

A hand is holding a piece of chalk while pointing to a blackboard. The blackboard has the words "Problems" and "Solutions" written on it, each prefaced with a checkbox. The checkbox for "Solutions" has a checkmark in it.

The Indian Health Service (IHS) Best Practices, Promising Practices, and Local Efforts (BP/PP/LE) website contains a collection of prevention/intervention strategies that works to improve the health of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations.

The purpose of this inventory is to:

  • Provide an IHS database of Best Practices, Promising Practices, and Local Efforts that can be easily accessed on the IHS website;
  • Improve informed consultation with Tribal and Urban programs by facilitating transparency in IHS and IHS supported activities; and
  • Highlight the great work that occurs in the field, communities, schools, clinics, and health centers.
