SOLUTION

Protect Tribal Nations

The Covid Watch Arizona App provides a lightweight tool to support Tribal Nations in their efforts to combat infectious diseases, like COVID-19. The technology fits unobtrusively into existing testing, vaccinating, and surveilling processes with a rigorous privacy-preserving framework to safeguard Tribal data and sovereignty.

Covid Watch Arizona is an effective, privacy-preserving, and cost-free tool able to support Tribal Nations as they navigate the evolving public health landscape.”

Exposure Notification and Tribal Nations

Tribal Nations are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 and are at more risk than other populations; the pandemic has had a significant impact on Tribal Nations and Tribal economies. For instance, COVID-19 cases per 1,000 people were four times worse on a reservation than any other community in the US at the peak of the pandemic. American Indian and Alaskan Native (AI/AN) are 3.3 times more likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19 and carry a mortality rate 2.2 times higher than any other group in the US.

WeHealth is dedicated to collaborating with Tribes as they navigate the approval, implementation, and success of Covid Watch Arizona App, and support continued Tribal contributions to the enhancement of public health technology.
