National Native American AIDS Prevention Center (NNAAPC) To address the impact of HIV/AIDS on American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians through culturally appropriate advocacy, research, education, and policy development in support of healthy Indigenous people.

HIV in Native Communities: Native Hawaiians and American Indian/Alaskan Native had the 3rd and 4th highest overall rate of new HIV infections per 100,000 respectively, among other races/ethnicities. The number of new HIV infections among American Indian or Alaska Native people has increased by 8.7% from 2007 to 2010. – This is the greatest percent increase in new infections when compared to all other races/ethnicities. 35% of Native women who acquired the virus did so through injection drug use. – This is the highest percentage of IDU acquisition amongst women of all other races and ethnicities. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2012)
HIV in Native Communities, Cont. Of persons who were diagnosed with HIV, fewer American Indian/Alaskan Natives survived, with only 88% living longer than 3 years, …this is the shortest survival rate out of every racial/ethnic category Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2012)
