Brazil and the International Women's Health Coalition (IWHC) have a very long relationship, so I was eager to meet our colleagues in this enormous country which defies categories and has done so much to improve women's lives and to cut HIV/AIDS off at the pass. Arriving last Sunday to São Paulo, a city of 11 million people, I was struck by the stunning contrasts of the place: a blend of First World and Third World I have only experienced in India and South Africa.
