“There is an urgent need for new resources and innovation in global health, and the world is looking to the BRICS and other emerging economies for greater leadership in these areas. As these countries invest more in global health and R&D, it is clear that their approaches differ from those of traditional donors and are shaped by their own experiences, philosophies and interests. It is also clear that the BRICS and other emerging economies will play an increasingly important role in driving access to new health technologies and services.

Shifting Paradigm comprises part of a larger GHSi project focused on the intersections between major growth economies and global health.

This report presents findings from a qualitative and quantitative survey of present and future efforts by Brazil, Russia, India,China and South  improve global health. It examines these roles within the broader context of international development and foreign assistance, though health remains the primary focus. This report also includes a brief look at other emerging powers beyond the BRICS that have potential to impact major global health issues.

The goal was to examine existing BRICS assistance programs and contributions to health innovation in order to identify opportunities for the BRICS and other emerging powers to expand upon their achievements and increase their contributions to improving health in the poorest countries.” (p.5-6).
