This article explores BRICS’ (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) engagement in the global movement for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and the implications for global health governance. The findings suggest that BRICS are unlikely to be a unified political block that will transform global health governance. Yet the documented involvement of BRICS in the global movement supporting UHC, and their focus on domestic challenges, shows that BRICS individually are increasingly influential players in global health.
