Siamit (Say-met) is a partnership founded by health workers at Harvard Medical School, Maniilaq (Mun-eee-lack) Social Medicine, and Mass General Brigham. Our mission is to provide world-class care while training the next generation of tribal health leaders. Our vision is a future of equal health for our homes.

At Harvard, Siamit is building a community of health workers, educators, and researchers committed to advancing an American Indian and Alaska Native health equity agenda through responsive, equitable, and lasting community partnerships. As an affiliate of the Harvard Medical School Center for Global Health Delivery, we build upon both the Center’s and the School’s missions to alleviate human suffering through teaching, research, and service—with a focus on strengthening tribal health systems through Indigenous leadership, social medicine, and excellence in clinical care.
