Indian Health Service. Hearings Before the Subcommittee on Department of the Interior and Related Agencies.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Appropriations.
Although in recent years the Indian Health Service has made significant strides in upgrading the deficiencies in the health care of American Indians, the Indian people still lag far behind the rest of the Nation in health status. The 1975 Indian Health Service budget proposal is designed to improve and expand the availability of health services to the Indian population. Funds will enable it to: (1) improve the quality and quantity of health services; (2) replace or improve some health care facilities; and (3) make further progress toward adequate community sanitation. On February 28, 1974, the Subcommittee on Department of the Interior and Related Agencies of the House Committee on Appropriations met to hear testimony on the 1975 budget request for the Indian Health Service; Administrator of Health Services Administration; Deputy Director of Indian Health Service; Director of the Division of Indian Community Development, Indian Health Service; Director of the Office of Environmental Health, Indian Health Service; and Director of the Division of Budget Formulation/OS.
