The Direct Service Tribes Advisory Committee (DSTAC) was established in 2005 to provide leadership that advises the Indian Health Service (IHS) Director on the development of health policy and participates in IHS decision-making that affects the delivery of health care. 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.
