This Epi Note is the product of collaboration between the Surveillance and Risk Assessment Division of the Centre for Infectious Disease Prevention and Control, Public Health Agency of Canada, and the National Aboriginal Council on HIV/AIDS. In this document, the HIV/AIDS epidemic among Aboriginal peoples has been compared to that among non-Aboriginal peoples. It is important to note that caution should be used when reviewing the percentages in this document. They can change considerably with the addition of one case, particularly when total numbers are small.
