This document establishes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR)1 policy on consultation with American Indian and Alaska Native (AllAN) governments and tribal leaders and provides guidance for working effectively with AllAN communities and organizations and enhancing AllAN access to CDC programs. Within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), each of the eleven operating divisions (OPDIVs) share in the department-wide responsibility to coordinate, communicate, and consult with tribal governments on issues that affect these governments. HHS policy requires that all operating divisions (or agencies) develop and implement agency-specific tribal consultation policies that are in compliance with the HHS Tribal Consultation Policy (see Section XI, A).
