pepfar-africaRecipient States in Global Health Politics: PEPFAR in Africa
Pereira, Ricardo. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2014.

Arguing in response to the idea that recipient countries assimilate to the global health programs of dominant donor states, Pereira contends that developing states can retain the ability to pursue their own policies and strategies to accomplish their national objectives. He shows how Botswana, Ethiopia, and South Africa have engaged in the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to serve their own respective interests. The work of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is discussed in multiple chapters throughout the book.
