Health Crises in the Native American Population For hundreds of years, Native Americans have had to face many hardships in their lives. These hardships include drug and alcohol abuse, poverty, and diseases. Due to these reasons, Native Americans have an average life expectancy of 73.7 years; 4.4 years shorter than the average white American (“Indian Health Services…”). Native American communities face huge challenges because of chronic health conditions such as type two diabetes, HIV/AIDS, and mental illness.

A high-rate of Americans living without health insurance coverage in one of richest countries is a major social issue facing the United States. Sered Fernandopulle and Ebrary research showed that there are over 40 million uninsured Americans that are falling through the cracks of the health care system. The question why have already been answered. Now the other question is what does it means for society as a whole when an extremely high-rate of adults and children suffer due to inadequate and inaccessible medical care. Uninsured Americans’ lives are greatly being impacted, by not having no health insurance, according to interviews with 120 uninsured men and women and dozens of medical providers, policymakers, and advocates from around the nation.

While their people have inhabited the United States for thousands of years, today their numbers are dwindling. From Columbus's arrival to America up until modern day life, Native American tribes have been oppressed by white settlers.
The Affordable Health Care Act is flawed in numerous ways. The premiums are higher than they anticipated them to be. They tried to make it to where everyone would pay the same amount, however it is more expensive to do this. That reason is people that are very sick are in the same health care plan as people that are healthy, and they never visit the doctor. So, healthy people are paying the costs for sick people to go to the doctor.
Health care should not be considered a political argument in America; it is a matter of basic human rights. Something that many people seem to forget is that the US is the only industrialized western nation that lacks a universal health care system. The National Health Care Disparities Report, as well as author and health care worker Nicholas Conley and Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), strongly suggest that the US needs a universal health care system. The most secure solution for many problems in America, such as wasted spending on a flawed non-universal health care system and 46.8 million Americans being uninsured, is to organize a national health care program in the US that covers all citizens for medical necessities.
The need for improved and less expensive healthcare in the United States has attracted people to form a group advocating for a universal healthcare system. Some of the major objectives of the organization are to enhance healthcare accessibility, make healthcare more affordable through the creation of new products and services, integrate technology in healthcare delivery for easier navigation, and also improve healthcare standards for the entire American population. Despite the expected positive implications of having a universal healthcare system in the country, some people are not aware of its existence. In this regard, it is important to discuss the need for universal healthcare system in the United States and its negative aspects; this
Market exchange is the exchange of commerce through the price of goods, while reciprocity is equal giving and receiving. Market exchange (capitalism) is considered an intensely social relationship and is generally understood as giving money to get something. Oftentimes, these exchanges are conducted directly between members of society, and so, social interactions and behaviors form as a result of constant back and forth; business transactions. If one does not have money, then one does not have the means to own private property; you do not have the means to engage in market exchange. In the past, American settlers believed that they were buying chunks of land from the Native Americans and that that land now belonged to them.
When you think of the typical Native American, also known as Indigenous, a stereotypical image probably comes to mind. You think of a sulky, half-naked male dressed in animal skin and a tall feathery hat, dancing around a fire. You might picture a slim, attractive female with smooth red skin and long black hair. These are the images fed to us by the media. The media created this generic version of an indigenous person and everyone has been running with it ever since.
CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION Background of the study “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have”- Winston Churchill A healthy citizen contributes to the development of a country. According to Indian constitution article 41, scheduled tribes are indications of primitive traits, distinctive culture, geographical isolation, shyness to contact with community at large and backwardness.1Health care system should take efforts to reduce the health problems among tribes and reduce their vulnerability to become a backward group. The statistics shows that tribal population even though a minor community contributes to an important portion of the population both in India and Kerala.
Healthcare ethics involves making well researched and considerate decisions about medical treatments, while taking into consideration a patient's beliefs and wishes regarding all aspects of their health. The healthcare industry has regard for the issues surrounding the welfare of their patients. Doctors, nurses, and other professionals who have the ability to affect a patient's health are all forced to make ethical decisions on a daily basis. I believe the result of ability to pay versus quality of care comes into ethical question in today’s society.
In the Declaration of Independence, it lists the right that Americans and health care did not include but it should be. When in grade school, you learn about the three things that are essential living: food, water, and shelter. And none of these essentials fix in the category of being a right. Americans should not be afraid that if they lose their jobs or get another job then they will lose their health insurances. The poorest people are unable to pay payment that comes from hospital services, or even just a basic check-up.
