From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 7948 addresses longstanding disparities in the collection and availability of public health data with respect to Indian Tribes by amending the Public Health Service Act to strengthen the ability of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to address and improve public health data sharing to Indian Tribes, Tribal organizations, and Tribal epidemiology centers (TECs). The legislation also requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretary) to report on existing data sharing agreements between States, the CDC, and Tribal communities and identify best practices. The legislation also reauthorizes CDC's National Center for Health Statistics."
