HIV Capacity Building in American Indian/Alaska Native Communities

Webinar Series


About the Series

The Office of Minority Health Resource Center's Capacity Building Division announces a webinar series covering a variety of topics related to capacity building and information on HIV/AIDS and various co-morbidities, such as sexually transmitted infections and mental health.

Overview of Capacity Building

There are many definitions for Capacity Building; however they all mean the same thing: activities that improve and enhance an organization's ability to achieve its mission and sustain and grow itself into the future. To that end, OMHRC's Capacity Building Division wants to build the knowledge of staff, providers, employees and those that seek to end the spread of HIV by offering trainings and information through accessible technology.

Recently there has been increased emphasis on HIV testing in Native communities. It is important to build the capacity of providers, while enhancing the general knowledge in the community. This seminar series is for anyone interested in HIV in Indian Country. It would be particularly useful to those that work on HIV prevention, education and testing programs, as well as anyone who wants to sharpen his/her skills and have a better understanding of the issues.

Specific Objectives:

  1. Understand the singularities of HIV/AIDS and co-morbidities in Indian Country and find resources to address them.
  2. Explore new strategies, tools and methods to tackle the epidemic of HIV/AIDS and its co-morbidities among American Indian/Alaska Native populations.
  3. Identify sources of funding and ways to sustainability to continue necessary programs in Indian Country.


This symposium is free and open to OMH grantees and OMHRC awardees, including representatives from the tribal communities and individuals providing HIV/AIDS and other health services in tribal communities.
