All my life I have been a doctor in the Ministry of Health, since the Medical Residency in 1981. I am/was a contestant and the Public Health System that has been allotted, scrapped mainly in the last years. For those who ignore it, the Private System in Brazil challenges in 41 million lives the public that the Constitution says it is for all. It should be for all, but the political allotment of the largest budget of the Union has generated real monsters, of robberies, embezzlement, nepotism.
Everyone will at some point use it, be it in Chronic and Rare Diseases, where Justice gives gain even to those who have private plans.
There is no difference between a doctor’s office and a hospital when you are a doctor, there are people who need treatment. In this country where income distribution is a joke, and health is the duty of the state, everyone wants and has the right to public care.
Doctors who do not like public service should stay out of it. You do not ignore in the hospital what you know in the office, you often do not have the same means to solve with the necessary speed, because the lines are long, and the investment different .
For those who don’t know expensive treatment processes, they sometimes have more chances to happen in the Public Net
As for the regulatory agencies, they serve to contain the infinite abuse of the Health Businessmen, who use the Government’s own indices to regulate their costs.
Poor people are not only in line, they are all over this country, in the streets and on farms, but they are people like all of us.
We will advance a lot when the normal Brazilian knows that in this country life has never been a priority, then we will change.
