The Navajo Epidemiology Center (NEC) is one of fourteen health programs located within the Navajo Division of Health (see organizational chart below). The NEC was established in 2005 to manage Navajo Nation's public health information systems, investigate diseases and injuries of concern, provide data and reports to help health programs effectively manage programs, respond to public health emergencies, and coordinate these activities with other public health authorities. The NEC’s primary objectives are: data collection, analysis and interpretation; health surveillance; disease control and prevention; and data sharing.
