Project Red Talon

Established in 1972, the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board (NPAIHB) is a nonprofit tribal advisory organization serving the 43 federally recognized tribes of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Their mission is to eliminate health disparities and improve the quality of life of American Indians and Alaska Natives by supporting Northwest tribes in their delivery of culturally appropriate, high-quality healthcare.

A project of the NPAIHB, Project Red Talon (PRT), has provided training and technical assistance to tribes and tribal organizations throughout the United States on implementing and evaluating culturally appropriate sexual health and STD/HIV prevention programs since 1988. PRT works to:

  • Delay sexual initiation and reduce sexual risk-taking.
  • Reduce STD/HIV infections and disparities.
  • Achieve a more coordinated national and northwest tribal response to STDs/HIV.
