Know your body. Know your status. Native Tested Proud

The Indian Health Service, through the HIV/AIDS Program, is addressing the problem of HIV/AIDS by supporting and expanding HIV prevention, testing, and treatment activities throughout Indian Country, with IHS, Tribal, and Urban (I/T/U) partners.

Funds for this project were provided by the IHS HIV/AIDS Program through a proposal to the Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI). Technical assistance was provided by Project Red Talon at the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board, and graphical design work was provided by G&G Advertising.

Native. Tested. Proud. HIV Testing Promotional Campaign

The "Native. Tested. Proud." campaign includes downloadable promotional materials that you may use for your own HIV testing campaigns. Included are a logo, insert cards to be inserted into "snag bags'" and posters aimed at teens and adults, and radio ads, below.

The Indian Health Service National HIV/AIDS Program created a campaign and materials to promote routine HIV Testing for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN). The campaign was developed in 2008 by AI/AN and Native Hawaiian partners and community members, who sought to develop a Native-specific media campaign promoting routine HIV testing.
