    Project brings AIDS testing to Mont. reservation
    Friday, November 21, 2003

    The Yellowstone AIDS Project of Billings, Montana, recently held several testing and information-sharing trips to the Northern Cheyenne Reservation.

    The Indian Health Service and the tribe's health department collaborated on the project. Upwards of 80 men and women of all ages were tested. They received counseling and were ensured anonymity. Project workers gave out safe-sex kits and other information.

    In some states, Alaska Natives and American Indians have the highest rates of AIDS and HIV infection.
