[International agencies and the control of Hansen's disease in Brazil].

Abstract

Main modes of international participation in hanseniasis control in Brazil, both public and private, are briefly described: public modes are established country to country or through Pan-american Health Organization; the others are essentially identified as "voluntary organizations". A descriptive assessment of this experience in Brazil follows. Considering our vast territory and a huge accumulated social debt, possible cooperative work is explored, adopting clear criteria (establishing priorities, planning and participative management), viewing basic actions as public attribuitions complemented by internacional organisms when necessary.
