The Kimaw Medical Center's Office of Tribal Injury & Violence Prevention Programs coordinate various existing injury prevention focused community programs, institutions and agencies in injury prevention activities, events and campaigns. Our goal is to reduce injuries involving tribal adults and minors while “driving under the influence,” non-use of safety restraints in motor vehicular crashes, and domestic violence injuries related to alcohol and other drug related problems. 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.
