The Ministry of Health today launched the National Health Card for the indigenous population. The card will include a national database to enable identification of indigenous peoples throughout the public health network in the country. In addition, the folder has launched a National System for the Management of Pharmaceutical Assistance (Horus), also focusing on indigenous health. The Horus is an integrated software to National Indigenous Health Card, which will monitor the health of each patient.

According to the ministry, the new card will ensure compliance with the Indians in civil hospital without the document, since much of this population does not have ID or social security number. The card will bring additional information such as ethnicity, indigenous name and the name blank.

According to the director of the Department of Pharmaceutical Care Sasisus, José Miguel Jr., the National Indigenous Health Card will build an electronic record with a history of care, immunization schedule, withdrawals of drugs, exams and surgeries. This card makes the patient be unique within a system, which will enable the control on the availability of drugs, he said. Since the Horus, according to Jose Miguel, qualify the NHS management, contributing to increased access to medicines. Nearly 1,351 municipalities and 19 states have joined the Horus. The expectation is that by December, 34 new indigenous poles make adherence to the system.

data generated in this system will assist in planning, evaluation and monitoring of actions in pharmaceutical care in the villages, said special secretary of Indigenous Health, Antonio Alves de Souza.

The government's goal is to bring Horus, until the end of the year for all Special Indigenous Health Districts (DISEIs).
