The International Labour Organization (ILO) Geneva engaged the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN) and the secretariat of the International Indigenous HIV & AIDS Working Group (IIWGHA) to undertake a qualitative study on stigma and discrimination experienced by indigenous peoples living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and/or having tuberculosis (TB) at work.
These documentaries are part of an award-winning series of three stand-alone films, called Promising Practices. These films highlight how Indigenous communities in Canada are utilizing harm reduction with cultural practices and evidence-based methods enhance health outcomes.
