Brazil was the country that received the greatest appropriations from the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) throughout Latin America. Out of approximately 13 million dollars invested in sanitation and education programs in countries on the continent between 1914 and 1949, practically half (7 million) was directed at the development of medical education, scientific research and sanitary campaigns in Brazil. As regards fighting hookworm infection, our particular interest here, Brazil was also the country that received the largest funding. The same is true for scholarships awarded between 1917 and 1962: Brazil received 443 scholarships, while the country that placed second, México, received 359.
