The Native Health Initiative (NHI) was created in 2005 as a partnership between health profession students and Indigenous communities to address health inequities, using the framework of health equity and loving service to guide our work. The partnership began in North Carolina, now primarily in New Mexico.
In 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NHI provided financial support to families. Financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utilities, traditional healing services, and groceries. Between August 2021 and August 2022, NHI received funding from the United Way of Central New Mexico and community donations to support the NHI community with financial assistance for those affected by Covid-19.
