The Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center (AASTEC) is open and diligently working to provide technical support to all 27 Tribes in the Indian Health Service Albuquerque Area. 


AASTEC’s mission is to collaborate with the 27 American Indian Tribes in the Albuquerque Area to provide high quality health research, surveillance and training to improve the quality of life of American Indians. AASTEC’s health priority areas were established in cooperation with our Executive Council and include: Behavioral Health, Healthy Aging, Injury Prevention, Chronic Disease Prevention and Management.

AASTEC is one of 12 Tribal Epidemiology Centers serving American Indians and Alaska Natives throughout the country.

EpidemiologyEpidemiology is the study of what is upon the people and it is the basic science of public health. It studies patterns of disease, risk behaviors and protective factors in human populations and applies these findings to the prevention and control of health problems.
