author
Tyrell, Haley Aulelei
abstract
American Samoa, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, is heavily reliant on federal funding and grants to sustain its operations. Although its government and healthcare system mirror those in the United States, the cultural norms and practices that persist on the island give rise to unique challenges. This thesis embarks on a comprehensive exploration of American Samoa, tracing its historical evolution, dissecting its current healthcare system, and uncovering how cultural norms influence healthcare practices.
