Abstract: [Introduction]. This document is a statement of the PAHO/WHO strategy for technical cooperation with Brazil for the period 2008 - 2012. It addresses priorities, the strategic approach and types of such cooperation. It was developed in consultation with Brazilian government, state and city government representatives, health-related NGOs and other international organizations that cooperate with Brazil in areas where development intersects with public health. Moreover, the negotiation of the strategy also meant working side by side with different PAHO/WHO departments and units at the national, regional and global levels. The formulation of the Country Cooperation Strategy (Strategy) was carried out by means of a detailed review of the priorities and policies in health and development that will be implemented in Brazil during the next few years. In this respect, its development is an important component of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). The Strategy was prepared based on a careful evaluation of the advances, challenges and opportunities for improvement in PAHO/WHO cooperation with Brazil, as well as on the assessment of priorities and policies that the Organization and Country are to implement in the near future, within the framework of national, regional and global commitments for development.
