  • Markus Fraundorfer
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


Chapter 3 starts with a brief overview of the latest developments in global health governance. The chapter continues by briefly tracing the origins and main developments of Brazil’s National AIDS Programme from the early 1980s to the beginning of the last decade. Thereafter, it analyses Brazil’s activities on the discursive interface of global health governance, focusing on the WTO Trade Dispute between the US and Brazil in early 2001. Subsequently, the focus is directed towards Brazil’s activities on the organisational interface examining Brazil’s role in the WTO, the World Health Assembly (WHA) and the UN Human Rights Council. Finally, the chapter examines Brazil’s activities on the resource-transfer interface and turns the attention towards the Ministry of Health and the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz).
