Figuring out how to deliver efficient, effective health care throughout Indian Country is one of the most daunting challenges the U.S. government faces. The U.S. is obligated by treaty to provide Native Americans with free health care on reservations, but the stories of how the system actually works often are astoundingly tragic. Now U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius plans to launch a new multi-year effort to improve health care for Native Americans.
