HIV/AIDS Prevention Program

Itom Takaa Te Nake

HIV, STI, and Hepatitis C prevention provides confidential, educational services to tribal community members in order to prevent transmission, enhance risk reduction, and increase individual knowledge. The program accomplishes this by dispensing condoms, female condoms, and dams and lubricants; by coordinating care, and by escorting/transporting members to medical appointments. The program also provides home visits, medication management and ongoing monitoring in home.

Free HIV/HCV Screening available at the Community Health Nursing Annex.
