By Ximena Pamela Díaz Bermúdez and Fernando Seffner

Abstract

O tema liderança da Declaração de Compromisso sobre HIV/Aids das Nações Unidas foi discutido quanto aos seus avanços, desafios e limites da atuação das principais forças sociais presentes no controle da epidemia de HIV/Aids no Brasil. A resposta nacional caracterizou-se, principalmente, pela experiência brasileira de convocação de múltiplas iniciativas governamentais, da sociedade civil e do setor privado para lutar contra a epidemia de HIV/Aids. As sinergias entre os diversos parceiros devem ser estreitadas, assim como articular esforços no campo do desenvolvimento científico e tecnológico para minimizar efeitos da dependência tecnológica. Essas ações visam a alcançar a sustentabilidade necessária para a produção de medicamentos e outros insumos, na perspectiva de aprimorar o cumprimento do preceito constitucional que preconiza a saúde como direito de todos.The present article focuses on the subject of leadership in the United Nations Declaration of Commitment in HIV/AIDS, discussing the advancements, challenges, and limitations to the action of major social forces acting to control the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Brazil. The national policy on AIDS was characterized by the illustrative Brazilian experience in summoning multiple government, civil society, and private sector initiatives to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The synergy between different partners needs to be enhanced and efforts in the field of scientific and technological development must be articulated in order to minimize the effects of technological dependence. These actions are aimed at the sustainable production of drugs and other products, with the perspective of improving the fulfillment of the constitutional precept of health as a universal right
