DSTAC also offers advocacy and policy guidance by regularly providing recommendations to the Agency.
The DSTAC is comprised of elected/appointed Tribal Leaders from ten (10) IHS Areas with Direct Service Tribes. Technical assistance for the DSTAC is provided by IHS Headquarters and Area-level staff.
