The Indian Health Services (IHS) LGBTQ-Two Spirit Workgroup seeks additional members. IHS is the federal health insurance program for American Indians and Alaska Natives. The Indian Health Service (IHS) works to ensure that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Two Spirit (LGBTQ-2S) American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) individuals and their families receive equal access to health services in the communities where they live. IHS carries out this work by providing enhanced resources for health issues, developing better information regarding health needs, and working to close the health disparities gap that currently exist for our Native LGBTQ-Two Spirit people.
