  • World Medical & Health Policy. Sep2016, Vol. 8 Issue 3, p305-328. 24p.
  • Millennium Development Goal 6 aimed to combat HIV/AIDS, and target 6B specifically focused on universal access to antiretrovirals. Global Millennium Development Goal (MDG) reporting based on national averages missed smaller populations and did not include a human rights viewpoint. Six countries in the Eastern Caribbean that endorsed the 2000 Millennium Declaration that were not included in global UNAIDS estimates were selected for this study. In this paper, physicians in the Eastern Caribbean provide a qualitative assessment of the sixth MDG from a right to health perspective that includes the dimensions of availability, accessibility, acceptability, and quality.
