Strong Medicine is an educational video developed by the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network and CATIE, with and for Indigenous people living with HIV. This screening kit includes one DVD, one facilitator’s guide, and 10 customizable promotional posters.
By weaving together Indigenous knowledges of culture and wellness and Western knowledge of HIV testing and treatment, this film shares accurate information about HIV testing and treatment. It encourages people to get tested and to start, resume or stay on HIV treatment for their own health and wellness. This video is a positive and supportive educational tool for all Indigenous people living with HIV and those affected by HIV.
The facilitator’s guide, included in the kit, is to support discussions about the film with your workplace, organization or community. The guide will help you take a respectful approach to creating space for empowering and thoughtful conversations about HIV. It includes practical tips for people planning to host a screening or a virtual discussion. Click here to see the PDF of the guide.
There is a limit of one screening kit per order. Please indicate in your comments if you have a special need for additional copies of either the posters, the guide or the DVD.
