Issues: Tribal differences, cultural assimilation, and geographic dispersion of indigenous people in the United States requires unique and tailored HIV/AIDS prevention services within each indigenous community.
Description: HIV prevention interventions in indigenous communities must be tailored to each communities’ needs and occurs at all levels within these communities.
Lessons learned: NNAAPC’s 16-year history of working with indigenous communities has provided insight into best practices and model programs for HIV prevention services in these communities. Individual, group, structural and community level interventions used within indigenous communities in the United States will be presented.
Recommendations: Indigenous communities around the world should exchange similar HIV prevention program information in an effort to further reduce the spread of HIV.
