IHS Community Health Aide Program (CHAP) Tribal Advisory Group

The workgroup is charged with providing subject matter expertise, program information, innovative solutions, and advice to the Indian Health Service (IHS) to establish a National Community Health Aide Program.

A key recommendation from the Tribal consultation was to ensure routine partnership with Tribes on the development and implementation of the program. To ensure this partnership, IHS established the Community Health Aide Program Tribal Advisory Group.
