DISCRIMINATION PROHIBITED Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states: "No person in the United States shall,
on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." Therefore, activities of the Public Health Service, like every program or activity receiving financial assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services, must be operated in compliance with this law.
