I Know Mine
The Alaska Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) HIV/STD Prevention Program established iknowmine.org to provide Alaska Native and rural Alaska youth with holistic health education and additional resources to promote healthy lifestyle choices. The website distributes educational materials and resources, condoms, harm reduction kits, HIV self-testing kits, NARCAN® kits and safe medication disposal supplies and offers the "I Want the Kit" STI self-testing through a partnership with Johns Hopkins University. The goal of the ANTHC HIV/STD Prevention Program is to create and disseminate materials, programs, and other resources and provide capacity and technical assistance to promote health and wellness while addressing the root causes of many health disparities, such historical and intergenerational trauma.
The Paths (Re)Membered Project centers the Two Spirit and LGBTQ+ community–its strengths, resiliencies, and histories—in our movement toward health equity. Through community engagement, research, and advocacy, we work toward a liberated 2SLGBTQ+ future, which includes the memories of Two Spirit ancestors, the wisdom of our elders, and the creativity of our young people. The Paths (Re)Membered Project is supported by funding from the Indian Health Service and the Minority HIV/AIDS Fund.
