ABSTRACT The literature on public health in Brazil has criticized the idea of universal health coverage (UHC), arguing that UHC is incompatible with the universal health system and the right to health. This article assesses that criticism and concludes that it creates a “strawman” argument. The idea of UHC that is being criticized in Brazil bears little similarity to the concept of UHC promoted by international organizations and discussed in the international literature. (AU)
