National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

June 27th, 2019

National HIV Testing Day

Indigenous Communities: let's talk about the tabu topics

Co-hosted By: Comprehensive Sexuality Education Advocacy Online Hub

Objectives:  To highlight the role of the indigenous communities in the HIV prevention and highlight topics are usually tabu for the specific key population. * To share the role of the culture as an advantage as well as disadvantage in meeting the sexual and reproductive health and rights of YKPs from indigenous communities

Outline:  In indigenous languages there are stories within the language and this exchange allows us to collectively encourage each other to combat stigma's and use them as teaching methods. Shaming, Blaming, Lateral Violence & Lateral Oppression play their part in creating stigma's in many of our indigenous communities. How can our indigenous communities work together to create "safe spaces" for HIV positive community members and combat stigma's. How do we be mindful when creating words in our indigenous languages to not create more stigma's associated with these indigenous words if any? * Participants are encouraged to write the word for HIV/AIDS and the translation of what it means in their indigenous language.  In keeping tradition of culture as prevention participants are encouraged to draw a "Winter Count" that represents some form of HIV/AIDS Prevention including "Undetectable = Untransmittable", "Adherance as prevention" and "culture as prevention". * What does "Indigenous Culture as HIV Prevention" mean to you participant? * What does "Indigenous Culture as HIV Treatment" mean to you participant?

2017 Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit

The second iteration of the Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit will be held December 4-5, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. We have changed the summit’s name from the National HIV PrEP Summit to the Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit (The Summit). NMAC believes the new name allows us to think about the expanded integrated role that PrEP, PEP and Treatment as Prevention (TasP) play in building the pathways to ending the epidemicThe conference’s logo represents a collaboration between community-based organizations (CBOs), health departments (HDs), national organizations and NMAC. This meeting brings together HIV leaders to discuss and learn about PrEP, PEP, TasP, and other biomedical HIV prevention interventions.NMAC thanks Gilead for recommitting their support of this meeting. We also thank ViiV HealthcareJanssen, Houston Health Department, Texas Health Action – Kind Clinic, Walgreens, Washington State Department of Health, Avita, and Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast for their support. The conversations taking place at the Summit will focus on the implementation and infrastructure needed to turn the promise of the science into an effective community-level HIV prevention option for community most in need.

Race and Biomedical Prevention Plenary III

December 5th, 207 @ 8:15am - 10:15am

Sheldon Raymore, The American Indian Community House, Inc.

Does race determine access and success? Currently over 75% of the people on PrEP are white, yet the majority of people living with HIV are people of color. Black women are 20 times more likely to get HIV when compared to White women. This racial divide is unacceptable and must be addressed. Our jobs are to fight for those communities that have less access to healthcare and medications to ensure that the implementation science works for the communities that are hardest hit by HIV.

Surviving the Epidemics and HIV/AIDS in Urban Indian Communities – Sheldon Raymore

Session 3: Friday, September 8th, 2017

9:00 - 11:00 am

This session will share the depths of the “urban Indian” health crisis and challenges in accessing culturally competent healthcare services. Decades of neglect have placed urban Indians at greater risk of health disparities including new HIV/AIDS infections and late HIV diagnosis. From the east coast to west coast, American Indians/Alaska Natives (AIAN) from many tribal nations have scattered across the country with 78% living away from reservations or villages. Within these urban Indian communities, AIAN continue to experience co-factors of risk including substance abuse, poverty, homelessness and high-risk behaviors. The urban AIANs have not been acknowledged or invisible in the efforts to address racial and ethnic disparities in health care. HIV/AIDS rates in urban Indian communities are seemingly high and/or are miscalculated/misclassified in epidemiology data. Continued recognition and awareness of the AIAN urban populations within the HIV/AIDS response is important to effective prevention programming, resource allocations and data/research initiatives.
