Universal access to healthcare is a point of pride for Canadians. However, it is no secret that there are many barriers to accessing the medical system, especially for stigmatized and marginalized communities.

Dr. Kate Shannon, associate professor of medicine at the University of British Columbia andĀ Director of the Gender and Sexual Health Initiative at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, is an advocate for health and human rights in the context of HIV and AIDS, addressing inequities by effecting change at the policy level.
