The Quechan Nation is observing the fourth annual National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day this week. The tribe will host a wellness walk, a candlelight vigil and other events to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS in Indian Country. Government statistics show American Indians and Alaska Natives are ranked third in the nation for HIV/AIDS diagnoses. Native Americans with HIV/AIDS diagnoses are also more likely to be younger than their non-Native counterparts and have the shortest time between AIDS diagnosis and death. Get the Story:
