Quechan Nation raises HIV/AIDS awareness
The Quechan Nation is raising awareness about HIV/AIDS in Indian Country.

The tribe is hosting HIV/AIDS Awareness Family Day this Saturday. The event includes tribal veterans, dancers, singers, a wellness walk, rapid HIV testing and other health resources.

"AIDS has become a huge issue for Indians, and my job is to give people the tools and information they need to prevent the disease," Christina Allan, the tribe's HIV prevention coordinator, told The Yuma Sun.

American Indians and Alaska Natives have the third highest HIV infection rate in the U.S.
