IHS Strategic Plan FY 2019-2023

The IHS Strategic Plan FY 2019-2023 details how the IHS will achieve its mission through three strategic goals. Each goal is supported by objectives and strategies. The strategies are activities to make progress on the stated objectives. The goals and objectives are inter-related and success in one area may overlap and influence successes in other areas. Multiple sectors across the Indian health care system may contribute to the successful achievement of a goal or objective.


To raise the physical, mental, social, and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level.


Healthy communities and quality health care systems through strong partnerships and culturally responsive practices.
