The problem of lack of resources for health can be solved by the government to end corruption, say 82% of the 2,002 people polled by Ibope in 141 municipalities in research on the public health system. For most (55%), delays in patient care is the main problem in the industry. The survey, released this Thursday (12), was commissioned by the National Confederation of Industry (CNI).

Only 4% of respondents said they believed the need for the government to increase taxes to get more resources for the sector. Research shows that 96% of the population has resorted to public or private health in your life and that 61% sought care in the last 12 months, 79% of outpatient in nature.

Public hospitals were public general average grade of 5.7 and the private network, 8.1 on a scale ranging from 0 to 10 points. Over the past 12 months, women used more health services (68%), and men with 53% of visits. Among respondents, 79% said they had used the service in public health in the last 12 months.

The increase in the number of physicians is considered by 57% of those consulted a necessary measure to improve care in the public sector. For 71% of respondents, preventive health policies are more important to the health of the population than the construction of hospitals. The privatization of health, with the transfer of management of public hospitals to the private sector was reported by 63% of people as another measure to improve patient care.

One of the things that surprised the researchers was the fact that 84% of respondents claim that the sale of drugs should be made only upon presentation and retention of a prescription. The executive manager of CNI Research, Renato da Fonseca, says the given surprising because a common habit among Brazilians is to seek nomination to the pharmacist or pharmacy clerk's time to buy medicine, instead of consulting a doctor.

For the majority of respondents (82%), generic drugs are as good as branded ones. They were also consulted about vaginal delivery and cesarean section and the majority (80%) agree, in whole or in part, that is better than normal CS.

People of higher income or better educated have more negative assessment on the quality of public health in Brazil, with emphasis on cities with more than 100 000 inhabitants or in the capitals. Women give more negative opinion about the system of their city, with 55% considering the poor service or bad, a number that, among men, it fell to 51%.
