Federalism and Healthcare: Lessons from Brazil

The Houston Family Post-Doc Fellow Lecture Series is pleased to present - Federalism and Healthcare: Lessons from Brazil

The decentralization of Brazil's healthcare system has affected policy-making at its national and subnational levels of government. The physicians who occupied important roles within bureaucracies at both national and subnational levels were a significant catalyst for change. These physicians were able to convince and mobilize other political actors to promote decentralization, and encouraged the implementation of universal healthcare coverage in Brazil. Are there lessons that Canada can draw from the Brazilian case?

About our speaker:

Catarina Ianni Segatto is the Houston Family Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Regina. Her research focuses on the relationship between federalism and public policy, and particularly on how intergovernmental relationships in healthcare and education affect regional inequality.
