The Department of Health of the State of Ceará has also announced support for the movement led by the National Front for More Resources for Health, which already includes 45 institutions. Launched this month, the action is collecting signatures throughout the country to classify as an amendment by popular initiative Bill dealing with the increase in funds for the Unified Health System (SUS).

The aim is to ensure the effective and full transfer of 10% of current gross revenues of the Union for the Brazilian public health, changing thus the Complementary Law No. 141 of January 13, 2012.

The Front intends to collect 1.5 million signatures (1% of the national electorate), at least five states of the Federation, and submit the matter to the House of Representatives. Then the project of popular initiative follows the normal course in Congress. The reason is that only with a fixed percentage allocation of resources for health as well by the Union will ensure that the Constitution establishes, as states and municipalities have already set this percentage. The bill amends the Supplementary Law No. 141/12, which regulates Constitutional Amendment 29, not only with regard to the underfunding of the SUS, but also proposing that resources are applied in an escrow account, maintained in official financial institution, under the responsibility of health care manager.

According to the President of the National Council of Health Secretaries (Conass), Beatriz Dobashi, it is important that society says "what is health that she wants to have funding in their country and no doubt, is a prerequisite for the We have the right to health guaranteed with the quality and integrity, he said.
