The Tribal Injury & Prevention Program will document injuries by use of computerized tracking system for specific types of injury trends for injury prevention surveillance. We provide injury prevention incentives, training and utilizing media resources to reduce incidence of injuries through public education legislation, enforcement, and community support.
