Native and rural communities in Montana suffer from severe health disparities. The mission of the Center for American Indian and Rural Health Equity (CAIRHE) is to reduce health disparities across the state through community-based participatory research that is considerate of and consistent with local cultures.
Since early 2015, CAIRHE has supported multiple research projects each year. For more about each project, click on the links below.
