In 1982, the Centers for Disease Control declared that Haitians were carriers of the HIV virus. The Haitian community organized and collectively challenged
this culturally insensitive policy, which for the first time labeled an ethnic group, rather than a behavior, as a risk factor in the spread of disease. This video offers a powerful look at the link between the politics
of public health and the experience of Haitian patients at a health clinic in Boston, Massachusetts.
