Abstract

The Alaska Native Epidemiology Center (ANEC) National Umbrella Cooperative Agreement (NUCA) Project will address the disproportionately high prevalence of intimate partner violence and sexual violence in the American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) population. This project will work to fill gaps in knowledge and data and disseminate the results to Tribal and national leaders, program planners and program directors in Alaska.

ANEC will partner with the Alaskan Native Tribal Health Consortium, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, EpiCenter, University of Alaska's Justice Center, the State of Alaska's Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault to conduct a comprehensive overview of existing data on intimate partner violence and sexual violence affecting AI/AN. Based on the information collected, the project team will develop a program of research on violence against AI/AN women, build evaluation capacity by assisting partners with the evaluation of an intimate partner violence prevention curriculum for Alaskan schools and write and disseminate reports in order to increase awareness of intimate partner violence and sexual violence in AI/AN populations.

The intended outcomes of this project include increased volume and quality of data on intimate partner violence and sexual violence in AI/AN populations, improved capacity of data processing in organizations that focus on AI/AN intimate partner violence and sexual violence, and the development of an outline for a national baseline study on violence against AI/AN women. Project records and survey methods will be reviewed periodically in order to evaluate the program's success in achieving the intended outcomes, as well as its ability to produce deliverables.

Objective
