American Indians and Alaska Natives

The numbers of HIV and AIDS diagnoses for American Indians and Alaska Natives represent less than 1% of the total number of HIV/AIDS cases reported to the HIV/AIDS Reporting System. However, when population size is taken into account, this population in 2005 was ranked 3rd in rates of HIV/AIDS diagnoses, after African Americans and Hispanics (1). The rate of AIDS diagnoses for this group has been higher than that for whites since 1995 (2).
