Abstract: "I want to go home, I want to be accepted. I want a life back there. I have things I want to teach my kids. I just need to go home. I have that hope that somehow the CHR is like a key. I really hope that they open the door for me." This paper focuses on the experiences and perspectives of First Nations women living with HIV/AIDS and explores how HIV/AIDS affects their lives differently from men's lives. It is based on original research carried out as part of a larger project on Aboriginal Women and HIV/AIDS for the National Indian and Inuit Community Health Representatives Organization in which we also explored the experiences and perspectives of female caregivers of people living with HIV/AIDS and women in "hard-to-reach" communities.
