Abstract:

This paper proposes a broad notion of access to health care, one that goes beyond entitlement to a doctor's services to examine how aspects of the doctor-patient relationship and the medical consultation can function as barriers to health care. Using data from a Canadian study into the health work of people living with HIV/AIDS (PHAs), the paper examines issues of health care delivery from the perspective of PHAs who looked after their health and consulted doctors from positions of social and economic vulnerability. The emphasis is on identifying various barriers to access and the "best practices" that diminish or eliminate them.
