Our Autumn Impact

The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation (HANF) prioritizes and focuses on the greatest health challenges Alaska Native individuals and communities face.

Together, with NANA and Akima (NANA’s federal group of companies), HANF recently partnered with with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium’s (ANTHCs) Community Health Aide Program to create and distribute 1,000 Elder Self Care Kits to Alaska Native Elders throughout the state. 

It is heartwarming to see communities pull together during these challenging times.

Connecting funding with unmet needs


The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation works to raise awareness and funding for the unmet needs of the Alaska Tribal Health System. That’s why we support key initiatives that deliver sustainable, effective and culturally relevant health care, from providing improvements at medical facilities that serve Alaska Native people, to supporting wellness and prevention programs that impact Alaska Native populations, to advancing healthy village environments around Alaska. By facing the greatest health challenges head on, we can lead healthy lifestyles and avoid chronic health issues. We believe that health care truly goes beyond treating those who are sick — we want to help Alaskans stay out of the hospital in the first place. By working collaboratively toward the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium vision that Alaska Native people are the healthiest people in the world, we can improve lives and inspire good health.
