Abstract

Although HIV/AIDS was not initially identified as a major public health challenge in Indian Country and among urban American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities, today it disproportionately affects this population. Using a postcolonial perspective, we review the state of HIV prevention knowledge generated by and in partnership with AI/AN communities. We also provide specific recommendations for the development, implementation, and evaluation of successful HIV prevention interventions and programs, through authentic community engagement and partnership, as we move forward in the next phase of the epidemic.
