Strong Medicine

An educational video developed by the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network and CATIE, with and for Indigenous people living with HIV

Stay connected


Strong Medicine weaves together Indigenous knowledge of culture and wellbeing, with Western knowledge of HIV testing and treatment. It encourages people to get tested and to start, resume or stay on HIV treatment for their own health and wellbeing.

This video is a positive and supportive educational tool for all Indigenous people living with HIV and those affected by HIV. It can be viewed in its entirety or in chapters.
