Risk and Protective Factors for HIV/AIDS in Native Americans: Implications for Preventive Intervention
Dennis, Mary Kate
Social Work, v54 n2 p145-154 2009
HIV/AIDS has steadily increased in Native American and Alaska Native populations, and despite efforts at control many challenges remain. This article examines historical, biological, social, and behavioral cofactors related to the spread of HIV/AIDS within the context of Native American culture. Special attention is given to vulnerable subgroups and to the need for culturally appropriate efforts at prevention and intervention that respect the unique needs of each group.
