The mission of the Indian Health Service, in partnership with American Indian and Alaska Native people, is to raise their physical, mental, social, and spiritual health to the highest level. The mission of the Office of Environmental Health and Engineering (OEHE) is to support that goal by:

  • providing optimum availability of functional, well maintained health care facilities and staff housing;
  • providing technical and financial assistance to Indian tribes and Alaska Native communities (tribes) to promote a healthy environment through the cooperative development and continuing operation of safe water, wastewater, and solid waste systems and related support facilities; and
  • assisting each American Indian tribe and Alaska Native community to achieve its unique goals for obtaining health care facilities and establishing and maintaining a healthy environment.
