Summary
"The book reviews a decade of women's participation in UN conference, transnational networks, national advocacy efforts and sexual and reproductive health provision, assessing both their strengths and weaknesses. It contains trenchant critiques of the Cairo, Beijing and Copenhagen conference documents and of World Bank, WHO and health sector reform policies. It also offers case studies of national-level reform and advocacy efforts and appraises the controversy concerning TRIPs, trade, and essential AIDS drugs. That controversy, Petchesky argues, starkly illuminates the 'collision course' of transnational corporate and global trade agendas with the struggle for gender, racial and regional equity and the human right to health."--BOOK JACKET
