programs and projects


Medical Education

Main question:in the last 10 years, under the pretext of improving the distribution of physicians across the country, the number of medical schools has doubled and the vacancies available have tripled. There is a lack of prepared teachers and adequate educational environments. In addition, there is a lack of residency programs to train recent graduates.

  • It is necessary to determine the number of doctors needed in each region of the country, as well as review the criteria for opening, operating and evaluating medical schools

  • It is necessary to program the evaluation of medical performance and the need for permanent updating programs, using technological tools and telemedicine


Integrated Regionalization

Main question:despite the constitutional requirement, SUS is not regionalized. There are a series of directives, norms, ordinances and guidelines for local systems to become regional, without practical results

  • Pilot project at CIR Piracicaba, carried out in partnership with FIESP/Consocial identified the need for a simple and practical approach

  • Analysis and dissemination of successful regionalization experiences in the country and abroad

  • Planning tools for creating integrated regional networks: manuals, existing models, calculation memories

Diverse Kindergarten

Early Childhood

Main question:a significant proportion of Brazilian children are born and grow up in conditions of need, the consequences of which are reflected in their neuropsychomotor development

  • Attention to the first six years of life allows the child to develop normally, with a positive impact on their entire life. This is a highly complex topic as it requires intersectoral work (Health, Education, Environment, Culture, Economy) associated with a governmental effort at three levels (federal, state and municipal), with a multiprofessional and interdisciplinary approach.

  • Coherent, participatory and integrated plans and actions promote public policies that propose implementable solutions


Financing of the Unified Health System

Main question:claiming that SUS funding is insufficient is only part of the current situation. It is necessary to analyze the available data and the results achieved, on an ongoing basis and with transparent criteria accepted by the interested parties. The impression from outside the system is that the country's health authorities have no control over how SUS resources are spent.

  • SUS funding needs to be dimensioned and exposed with transparency to facilitate the discussion of the topic

  • The participation of States and Municipalities in financing the SUS needs to be analyzed and rethought
