HIV/AIDS Epi Update: Chapter 8- HIV/AIDS Among Aboriginal People

february 12, 2015

This chapter of the HIV/AIDS Epi Update series summarizes recent epidemiological information and findings from Canadian research on HIV in Canada’s Aboriginal Peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Métis).  It begins with a demographic overview of the Aboriginal population using information from the 2011 National Household Survey and is followed by surveillance data on diagnosed cases of HIV among Aboriginal people. The final section describes the factors, including determinants of health that affect the vulnerability of Aboriginal people to HIV and the experience of diagnosis, care, treatment and support for Aboriginal people living with HIV.

The publication will be available on the PHAC Website (http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/aids-sida/publication/epi/2010/index-eng.php) later in February 2015.
