Partners are what makes the AKVDRS successful
The AKVDRS was developed using many longtime established partners who have been involved in other public health projects and surveillance activities including the Alaska Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation project (established 1991) and the Alaska Trauma Registry (established in 1990).
Cooperation from the Alaska Health Analytics and Vital Records Section (formerly Alaska Bureau of Vital Statistics), State Medical Examiner Office, Alaska Department of Public Safety (State Troopers and Alaska Bureau of Investigation), the many local law enforcement agencies, and the military investigation offices are duly noted and appreciated.
Additional assistance in ensuring the success of the AKVDRS program comes from the countless hours of dedication and program direction provided to AKVDRS staff from the members of the AKVDRS advisory group.
