The Indian Health Service (IHS) is providing $180,000 in funding for the National HIV Program. The purpose of this IHS cooperative agreement is to meet community needs for the enhancement of HIV/AIDS testing activities and the provision of HIV/AIDS-related services among AI/AN people. Such programs are necessary to reduce the incidence of HIV/AIDS and improve quality of life for People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). The main goals are to: increase the number of AI/AN with awareness of his/her HIV Status; and, improve engagement and retention in care among PLWHA. Awardee activities will seek to: increase access to HIV related services, reduce stigma, make HIV testing routine, and improve engagement in care. Emphasis should be placed on increasing routine HIV screening for adults as per 2006 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, provide pre- and post-test counseling (when indicated), and developing or deploying strategies for engaging PLWHA in appropriate, culturally responsive HIV-related care.
