HIV rates among American Indians and Alaska Natives are lower than rates reported among most racial/ethnic groups but higher than rates among Asians and whites, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

According to the 2017 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Annual Client-Level Data Report, the proportion of RWHAP clients who achieved viral suppression increased steadily from 2010 to 2016, from 69.5% in 2010 to 85.2% in 2016. Rate improvements were comparable American Indian/Alaska Native RWHAP clients, increasing from 78.1% to 84.4% over this time period.
