Program Type: Evidence Based Practice - Programs formally evaluated to be effective, sometimes called "Best Practices", that can be replicated and implemented, even with modifications in other settings
The Native American Prevention Project Against AIDS and Substance Abuse (NAPPASA) collaborated with several schools throughout northern Arizona and western Washington to develop, implement and evaluate culturally sensitive HIV/AIDS preventive interventions that are linked with alcohol and other drug abuse prevention programs. The NAPPASA school curriculum, for 8th and 9th graders, consisted of 24 -session curricula which addressed multiple issues facing American Indian communities from the perspective of the American Indian experience.
