Studies the occurrence, distribution and frequency of HIV/AIDS in Canadian Aboriginal people. It explores what role culture plays in rates of infection, and in what ways issues of AIDS and HIV infection should best be addressed in our communities. This manual presents a participatory approach to epidemiology. It is in part reference manual and part education kit. It includes a number of frequently asked questions about HIV/AIDS epidemiology and how this information is gathered and used. In the application section, ideas are provided as to how this information can be used to affect a new understanding of HIV/AIDS epidemiology in the communities we work with. The manual is intended for those Aboriginal people already familiar with HIV/AIDS issues in Aboriginal communities, and who may have had some contact with HIV epidemiological information.
