Perspectives on the Health Sector: challenges and opportunities José Gomes Temporão, MD, PhD Former Minister of Health ( ) South American Institute of Government in Health (Isags)
THE PRESENTATION 1-BACKGROUND 2- THE TRANSITIONS 3- HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT 4-THE NEW SOUTH AMERICAN HEALTH CONTEXT
Brazil - Economic and Institutional Scenario Macroeconomic stability (inflation, fiscal and monetary policies, etc.) Institutional strength (democracy, state organization) Stable growth trajectory GDP 2010 growth: 7,5 % Long Term Perspective: sustainable growth Perspective: 5 th position in world Economy
Brazil: Social, Demographic and Health System Changes Substantive improvement in social inclusion and income distribution Social assistance programs Expansion of middle class GINI index decrease: 9% from 1999 to 2009 (Ipeadata, 2010) Universal health system consolidation (Datasus, 2009) The primary Family health care program: universal access Infant mortality rate: the biggest decrease in the last 10 years worldwide - 5,2%/year Life expectancy improvement (from 67 years in 1990 to 73 years in 2009)

The Brazilian Health Reform and The SUS – Unified Health System
1980s: After dictatorships end a new Democratic Constitution is proclaimed 1980s: After dictatorships end a new Democratic Constitution is proclaimed Private services for those who could afford Social Security for sectors formally employed Public health for endemics and epidemic hazards Health as Universal Right Health as State duty Decentralized to states and municipalities Public/Private mix Social participation at all levels National (Unified) Health System Fragmented system … Democratic Constitution
SUS – Unified Health System SUS Indicators –75% of the Brazilian population depend on SUS –6,000 hospitals –64,000 primary care units –30,000 family health care teams –2,3 billion ambulatory appointments –12 million hospital admissions –9 million chemo- and radiotherapy procedures 19 thousand transplants sponsored by SUS –1 million CT scans and 160,000 Magnetic Ressonance –8 million hemodialyses procedures SUS Characteristics 1.Universality: SUS, as the Brazilian public system, provides healthcare for all, regardless of distinctions and restrictions; 2.Unity: one system composed of decentralized unities managed by different governmental levels (Federal, State and Local/Municipal)
More than 75% of the Brazilian population depends exclusively on SUS (150 million people) for its health needs The other 25% has private coverture but uses also the SUS (transplants, high cost drugs, emergency care, vaccines, Aids etc) NATIONAL HEALTH SYSTEM (SUS)
Private System: Insurance Health Plans Revenue (Brazil, 2000 to 2009) Note: revenue growth is also the result of improved collection of information by ANS, expressing only partly real growth.
Targeting equity BRAZIL: an unequal country that chose to build a universal health system

3-Health and Development: General Perspective From Brasil
Health and Development (The Duality of Health) Health as a citizenship condition and a proeminent area of development
The Duality of Health Articulation of economic logic with health logic Development of production base combined with health needs Health Sector In Brasil About 8% GDP 10% of qualified work of the country 12 million direct and indirect jobs Platform for new technological paradigms (fine chemicals, biotechnology, eletronics, nanotechnology, new materials, etc)
Perspective of demand explosion and a strong pressure on the productive base: a challenge and an opportunity

Public and Private Development Partnership (PPDPs) NINE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS WERE ALREADY ESTABLISHED INVOLVING : 9 public companies; 20 private companies ; Local development and production of 28 active principles (API`s). The public purchases with these APIs currently reach around R$ 1,5 billion per year. After full implementation, these partnerships will be able to save an estimated amount of R$ 390 million per year.
