NNAAPC Mission Statement

To eliminate HIV/AIDS and confront related health and social determinants that negatively
impact American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and Indigenous peoples.


NNNAAPC offers a variety of programs to help promote education about HIV/AIDS, support prevention efforts, help foster healthy attitudes about sexuality and sexual health in the Native community.


NNAAPC understands the kind of HIV/AIDS prevention work being done and is committed to providing access to the resources that we have developed ourselves and acquired over the years from our many partners.


Our organization has produced a variety of publications, primarily HIV/AIDS specific material, that are designed to help educate our Native communities and the health care providers who serve them.

National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NNHAAD) is a national mobilization effort designed to encourage Natives (American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians) across the United States and Territorial Areas to get educated, get tested, get involved in prevention and get treated for HIV and AIDS.

NNHAAD was founded in 2007 by three collaborating agencies then called the National Native Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) Network, which included Commitment to Action for 7th-Generation Awareness & Education (CA7AE), Inter Tribal Council of Arizona Inc. (ITCA), and National Native American AIDS Prevention Center (NNAAPC). The three network agencies were funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide capacity building assistance to native organizations, tribes, state health departments and any other organization serving Native populations. Since the founding of NNHAAD the collaborative partnership has grown to include Great Plains Tribal Chairmen's Health Board (GPTCHB), Florida Department of Health, Education, Training and Research (ETR), and Salish Kootenai College (SKC).

The first day of Spring, March 20th, was chosen as the date to celebrate National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. It was acknowledge that in many Native cultures across the US that the four seasons are highly respected in many cultures because they closely represent the cycle of life.
