Universal Access to Care, HIV/AIDS Prevention and Social Change

With the 16th International AIDS Conference underway in Toronto, CA, it has been encouraging to see that Caribbean leaders are embracing the development of a comprehensive agenda to tackle the AIDS pandemic. As a matter of fact, numerous calls have been raised to support the integration of a strategic vision gearing toward the provision of universal access for HIV/AIDS preventions (see here).
These latest developments are essential to follow up, as for the Caribbean region such perspectives align the process of health sector reforms within a paradigm for social change.
These transformational dynamics highlight the expansion of understandings vis-à-vis certain typologies in health systems as structures that should connect with social, economic and political variables in order to conceptualize and develop more inclusive approaches in development, and human-rights based practices.
For such archetypes introduce on one hand the capacity to address matters of exclusion and inequalities, while on the other hand providing adjustments in access to care with the policy responses needed to map out the needs of marginalized groups.
