Abstract

For over a half of a century, Native American populations have participated in numerous studies regarding the epidemiology, prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. These studies have resulted in measures to prevent morbidity and mortality from many infectious diseases. The lessons learned from these studies and their resultant prevention or treatment interventions have been applied around the world, and have had a major impact in the reduction of global childhood morbidity and mortality.
