The Great Plains Tribal Leader's Health Board (GPTLHB) provides key advocacy for its constituents in order for them to have access to the highest quality, most comprehensive, and up-to-date health resources available in the areas of research, education, assistance, prevention, and outreach.
The Training & Education Department (ED) is designed to work with our representative tribes and collaborative partners to identify training and resource needs as requested. Programs provide training, education, and support services designed to encourage self-sufficiency and improve healthcare.
The Emergency Operations Center (EOC), established in 2020, serves as an EOC for 17 tribal nations and one service unit across a four-state region and provides training on disaster mitigation to individuals from these areas. The EOC also develops and implements culturally responsive public health emergency management plans and procedures to support Great Plains Area tribal communities.
The Great Plains Navigator Program aims to increase knowledge of the Health Insurance Exchanges and resources and assist uninsured American Indians living in He Sapa Catchment counties and urban Rapid City to navigate the Health Insurance Exchanges and enroll. The outreach area includes Oglala, Rosebud, and Cheyenne River Sioux tribal communities.
