Researchers at CRIHB conduct Health Services, Health Policy and Epidemiology studies on public health and personal health care. Research is a vital activity at CRIHB that gathers and analyzes data on the health needs, health services and health status of California Indians.  The primary purpose of CRIHB Research is to support tribal health programs in California in the improvement of their health services to meet those needs and improve health status.

CRIHB Research results are used to advocate for improvements in public policies that fund the services that tribal health programs provide. The increases in funds can then be used by tribal health programs provide to improve the kind and quality of health services they offer to California Indians.

In planning, designing and implementing their studies CRIHB Researchers receive continual guidance from tribal leaders, service users and health professionals of the tribal health programs. The CRIHB Institutional Review Board (IRB) oversees all research activities of CRIHB staff for protection of tribal participants in studies in California.  The IRB reviews are conducted by the CRIHB Corporate Compliance unit to provide oversight of CRIHB researchers and protection of California Indians participating in the studies that they review.
