sus 30 years 2018

Washington, DC, October 20, 2018 (PAHO/WHO) – Two new publications of the Pan American Health Organization summarize the achievements and challenges of the Brazilian Unified System (SUS) in its main areas of action, and make recommendations to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in 2030. The publications are part of the 30th anniversary celebration of the SUS.

The new publication “"Relatório 30 anos de SUS. Que SUS para 2030? Síntese Versão Prelimina" (Report on 30 Years of the SUS. How will it be in 2030?), analyses issues relevant to the SUS that include: governance, financing, primary health care, the More Doctors Program, training and management of human resources for health, medicines and technological innovation, child mortality, immunizations, chronic diseases and mental health, and the response to the Zika epidemic in Brazil.

The second publication, titled “Relatório de pesquisa: Cenários e desafios do SUS desenhados pelos atores estratégicos” (Research report: SUS scenarios and challenges designed by strategic actors), presents the results of a consultation with almost 100 Brazilian strategic actors (with former ministers, health secretaries, private sector managers, academics, parliamentarians, and specialists) on the SUS sustainability.

The final report will be released and discussed at a seminar in Brasilia, Brazil, on 22-23 November 2018, and it will be translated into English and Spanish. Access the publications here.
