Over 67% of all American Indians and Alaska Natives live in urban areas. National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) is the only membership organization of Urban Indian Health Programs, providing advocacy, expanding resources, and creating a “national voice” for Native American/Alaska Natives living off reservation.
There are currently 36 Urban Indian Health Programs (UIHPs) that are part of the Indian Health Service and administered by the Office of Urban Indian Health Programs. All 39 of these health facilities are eligible members of NCUIH. Many of these programs provide dental services.
