United Indian Health Services (UIHS) is located in Arcata, California. UIHS provides vision and primary care services to approximately 10,000 patients across Northern California. Their board of members is made up of nine distinct tribes.
UIHS and Seva have partnered through Seva’s American Indian Sight Initiative since 2015. Through this partnership, UIHS was able to purchase equipment used to improve services and decrease the amount of outside referrals, cutting down on extra travel costs and time off work for their patients. Seva is focused on supporting UIHS’s plans to increase their capacity and improve their vision care program. Recently, UIHS hired an optometrist who has been working to strengthen the vision care program.
In addition to these partners, we support capacity building in over 90 hospitals around the world.
