The newest title from the American Public Health Association, Promises to Keep, explains the changes that are occurring in the Indian health care delivery system as it evolves from a federal government program to a health care system that increasingly is operated by tribes. Promises to Keep describes the history, legal basis, financing and organizational structure of the complex health care delivery system that is intended to serve American Indians and Alaska Natives. This book charts a course for public policy that would reduce the disparities in funding and health status among American Indians and Alaska Natives.
