For a Global Agenda on post Millennium Development Goals
Abstract In recent years, Brazil channeled efforts
around the global agenda for the health of people.
In October 2011, with the technical and financial
support of the Brazilian Government, the World
Health Organization held the World Conference
on the Social Determinants of Health, in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil. The Rio Declaration, which came
out of this global conference, included multiple
commitments drawn up by the government rep-
resentatives who were present. This process of de-
bate and exchange of global experiences widened
and, in June 2012 the United Nations Conference
on Sustainable Development was also held in Rio
de Janeiro. Known as Rio+ 20, this global forum
was attended by 190 nations and heads of state.
They proposed changes especially in the ways in
which the planet’s natural resources were being
used. Besides environmental issues, other issues
related to social policies such as health, education,
work and housing were addressed. “The Future
We Want for All”, the main document and product
of this forum, received numerous contributions
from global society. These discussions pushed for
the implementation of global public policies that,
through an extensive process of capacity building,
translate these commitments of heads of states,
from all over the world, into policies that act on
