"Aboriginal people in Canada have higher levels of HIV infection relative to other Canadians
and face some of the most challenging barriers to health care and medications.
The barriers include stigma and discrimination.
Recent studies have shown that Aboriginal people with HIV/AIDS die more rapidly
because they did not access drugs or health care.
It is crucial to provide culturally sensitive health care services
to Aboriginal People living with HIV/AIDS."

Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network says . . .
"As the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Canada unfolds, figures continue to increase for the Aboriginal population at alarming rates. While most Canadians believe that HIV/AIDS is no longer a threat, Aboriginal communities are getting hit harder and harder. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, Aboriginal people made up 23.4% for HIV-positive test reports up to December 31, 2003."

HIV/AIDS-related issues among Indigenous Peoples
Many Indigenous People live today as marginalized minorities in conditions of poverty and powerlessness-conditions favourable to the spread of HIV.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, Native Americans have the third-highest infection rate of any U.S. population. Native Americans face some unique challenges when it comes to fighting the disease, including a high poverty rate, a young population, limited access to HIV testing and treatment, and the misconception that AIDS is a "white man's" disease.
