This film and its accompanying documents are part of the "Preventive Education Series for STD/HIV/AIDS and Viral Hepatitis among Indigenous Peoples of Javari Valley" (Amazonia). This multicultural and multilingual pedagogical material was conceived as a follow-up of a workshop in the Javari Valley. Its aim is to support teachers in Marubo, Matis and Mayoruna (Matsés) areas in their actions to prevent diseases in indigenous schools, as well as in local communities.

This material also constitutes a tool for teachers to work better with students of different ages, gender and school levels.
