Native Women HOPEThe Native Women HOPE is a social-skills training intervention. It is aimed at reducing HIV/STI/STD sexual risk behavior. It is comprised of four 2-3 hour sessions, delivered by facilitators in a community-based setting. The sessions are gender specific and culturally relevant and include behavioral skills practice, group discussions, lectures, role-playing, prevention video viewing, and take-home exercises.
Tribal BEAR ProjectThe Tribal BEAR Project is a program of the Northwest AIDS Education and training Center, funded through the Minority AIDS Initiative of Ryan White Care Act. We provide a broad spectrum of HIV/AIDS training to tribal health clinics and Native substance abuse treatment centers in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Alaska. Partnering with the Salish Kootenai College Center for Prevention and Wellness on the Flathead Reservation in Montana and the South Puget Intertribal Planning Agency in Washington State, the BEAR Project brings culturally sensitive training directly to busy tribal clinic providers, nurses, behavioral health, outreach, and other staff. Most clinics are located in remote areas where HIV-specific training is not typically available.
