FERREIRA, LUCIANA BENEVIDES; RAMOS, DANILO PAIVA  and  SHANKLAND, ALEX. Management, Policy and Social Movements in the Upper Rio Negro Special Indigenous Health District. Novos estud. CEBRAP [online]. 2019, vol.38, n.2, pp.351-369.  Epub Sep 05, 2019. ISSN 0101-3300.

This article discusses the interplay of different forms of accountability in the context of the Indigenous Health Subsystem of Brazil’s Unified Health System (SASI-SUS), via a case study of the Rio Negro Special Indigenous Health District (DSEI-ARN) in the State of Amazonas. Focusing on a case of indigenous mobilisation triggered by a malaria outbreak it highlights some of the underlying dilemmas that derive from the embedding of conflicting accountability logics within the architecture of the SASI-SUS.

Keywords : accountability; social movements; indigenous health.
