The Native Health Databases contain bibliographic information and abstracts of health-related articles, reports, surveys, and other resource documents pertaining to the health and health care of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Canadian First Nations. The databases provide information for the benefit, use, and education of organizations and individuals with an interest in health-related issues, programs, and initiatives regarding North American indigenous peoples. There are two databases that make up the Native Health Database. These are the Native Health History Database and the Native Health Research Database (NHRD). The NHRD was developed by the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center with funds made available by a contract with the Indian Health Service, the Native Health Research Database provides access to bibliographic information pertaining to health and medical issues of the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) and Canadian First Nations populations. The scope of the NHRD is limited to contemporary articles, studies, and reports focused on the medical (physical and psychological), anthropological, and administrative aspects of AI/AN health. The database entries cover a time period from approximately 1970 to the present. NHRD is updated on a regular basis, usually at least once a month.
