National Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Vector-Borne Diseases Tribal Listening Session
Please join us for a virtual 90-minute Zoom listening session to share your comments and suggestions related to the prevention and control of vector-borne diseases on Friday, December 9, 12:30-2:00 PM ET.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with partner federal agencies, would like to hear comments and suggestions from American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations on the National Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Vector-Borne Diseases. The Strategy represents the Federal Government’s priorities for addressing vector-borne disease threats.
CDC will be hosting a listening session on December 9, 2022, to learn from your experiences and ideas and gain insight into how we can improve the prevention and control of vector-borne diseases in all communities.
Your inputs will inform the Strategy. Specifically, we are interested to hear your thoughts on:
- What are your overall impressions of the Strategy?
- Do the proposed goals and strategic priorities of the Strategy address the most pressing vector-borne disease concerns for tribal communities? If not, what should be prioritized and why?
- How can we strengthen our partnerships to implement effective solutions to addressing the challenges associated with vector-borne diseases?
- How would you like to be engaged as the Strategy is further developed and modified over time?
- Your ideas on how we can strengthen our partnership and what the most effective solutions are to addressing the challenges associated with sexual violence
Incorporating input from tribes and tribal organizations is a valuable component in finalizing the strategy, and your time and consideration are appreciated.
Written comments are also encouraged through submissions as part of the public request for information (RFI) no later than midnight Eastern Time (ET) on December 21, 2022.
