Description

American Indian Infant Health Initiative (AIIHI)

The Indian Health Program (IHP) administers the AIIHI program, which provides extensive home visiting/case management services to high-risk Indian families.

The AIIHI is modeled after the “Healthy Families America” program, which offers home visitation to provide basic health care information for high-risk or potentially at-risk families with young children under age 5.  This service also connects families with available resources in the American Indian communities such as WIC, parenting classes, child safety classes, basic health care information as well as other social services.  Families receive visits from American Indian paraprofessionals or Public Health Nurses who can offer health information about a variety of topics in the privacy of their own home.
