The Navajo Epidemiology Center (NEC) was established in 2005 to manage Navajo Nation's public health information systems, investigate diseases of concern, manage disease prevention and control programs, respond to public health emergencies, and coordinate these activities with other public health authorities. The NEC’s primary objectives are: data collection, analysis and interpretation; health surveillance; disease control and prevention; and data sharing.
There are 12 Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TECs) throughout the United States. The map below shows the 12 TECs and regions they represent.
