“In addition to expanding the number of health professionals, [o programa] will work to improve the SUS with investments in the construction and renovation of Basic Units, expanding services in Brazil”, celebrated the Chief Minister of the Communication Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic, Paulo Pimenta, on Twitter this Saturday (18).

In the same publication, Pimenta recalled that the program, created by then President Dilma Rousseff, “became responsible for 100% of primary care in 1,039 municipalities, hired more than 18,000 professionals and benefited 63 million Brazilians. “The dismantling of the program in recent years shows the neglect suffered by the SUS”, he added. In the new format, the expectation is that incentives for professionals to remain in the municipalities will be announced.
