Notes: 
Review, Network Spring 2006: The current HIV epidemic is increasingly affecting Aboriginal people and women. While research continues to improve treatment, prevention is still the best way to keep the number of new cases from growing. Education is important, and children need to learn how to stay healthy as they grow older. This is the story of a rural First Nations family and community facing HIV. Of particular note is the way the authors have included insights into the influence of elders in the community and of traditional gatherings.
