AbstractThis dissertation analyzes the process of international negotiation over tuberculosis (TB) control in the Former Soviet Union (FSU) during the 1990s. Relying on archival research, interview data, survey research, and ethnographic fieldwork, this dissertation shows the relevance of political economy, bioethics, and the sociology of knowledge to TB reform in Central Asia, Russia, the Caucuses, and other regions of the FSU. This dissertation shows how debates around TB reform in the FSU have revealed the roles of national governments, multilateral institutions, and nongovernmental organizations in a world system of international health policy structured during the cold war.
