The Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI) is excited to announce a formal partnership with Project Inform, a national HIV and hepatitis C advocacy and education organization based in San Francisco that:
- Encourages the development of better treatments and cures for both HIV and hepatitis C.
- Advocates for innovative, medically-based prevention strategies.
- Provides up-to-date, life-saving information to help people living with HIV and hepatitis C make the best choices regarding their treatment and care.
- Presses governments to set policies and assure unlimited access to affordable health care that will one day end the HIV and hepatitis C epidemics.
The UIHI and Project Inform are working together to culturally adapt patient education materials on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a pill that prevents HIV infection in people at risk of becoming infected.
There is considerable need for PrEP patient education materials that include imagery and resources that are sensitive to the needs of American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs). The UIHI and Project Inform look forward to a long-term relationship, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of AI/ANs. We’re eager to share the materials with clinics and programs in summer 2017!
