WHY: American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) males experience death rates 200 to 500 percent greater than AI/AN females for suicide, HIV/AIDS, homicide, unintentional injuries, diabetes, firearm injury, and alcohol-related deaths and 10 to 50 percent higher than AI/AN females from cancer, heart disease, and liver disease. The AI/AN population is the only racial group in which males experience higher levels of self-reported psychological distress than females.
