Accomplishments of the Navajo Health Authority (NHA) since it began in 1972 are presented in synopsis form in a report of programs underway at Window Rock and Shiprock, along with NHA goals: to promote development of Navajo Health manpower, preventive medicine, health education, and native healing sciences. After a brief review of executive and administration and support services accomplishments, the report focuses on Window Rock programs: Allied Health, Office of Student Affairs (scholarships, health careers recruiting, Summer Work Experience Program for high school and college students in health-career settings), Health Education, Nursing Education (including rural critical care training), Emergency Medical Services (development of a comprehensive system), Health Statistics and Research (only tribal office of health statistics in the U.S.), Native Healing Sciences, and Navajo Comprehensive Health Planning Agency.
