The First Biennial Report on Health Issues for the State of North Dakota (Report) was prepared in 2010 by the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences (SMHS) Advisory Council, a legislatively mandated group of 15 stakeholders in the North Dakota healthcare enterprise. It was published in 2011 to coincide with the 62nd Legislative Assembly of North Dakota, and was produced with the cooperation of the senior leadership team of the SMHS.
The primary stimulus for the preparation of the Report was a revision in the North Dakota Century Code (NDCC) that was instituted by the 2009 Legislative Assembly, in which the duties of the SMHS Advisory Council were modified. The modified duties included a requirement to submit a report biennially. The latest report is available below.
