All healthcare is not the same in the United States, especially for Native women. Many Native American and Alaska Native women receive their care from Indian Health Service (IHS), a federal agency responsible for providing Native American health care.
For these women, this can mean not having access to basic post-rape care. That’s because IHS facilities don’t always follow their own guidelines for post-rape care; they might not even have rape kits available. This leaves many Native women without adequate care and justice.
