The Health Ministry released $ 600 million for elective surgery and $ 50 million specifically for cataract operations in counties with at least 10% of the population in extreme poverty - which is expected to benefit 2,555 cities.

In total, will be $ 650 million for non-emergency or urgent procedures. The ordinance regulating the transfer, which is available, was published today (2) in the Official Gazette

Cataract surgery was allocating $ 180 million for being the most popular in the Unified Health System (SUS). For the treatment of varicose veins, orthopedic, urologic, ophthalmologic and otolaryngology were allocated $ 210 million and will be implemented in accordance with state and municipal managers $ 210 million, completing the $ 600 million.

Health Minister Alexandre Padilha said the increase in transfer to states and municipalities - $ 350 million to $ 650 million between 2011 and 2010 - aims to anticipate the hiring of services for joint efforts.

We are taking an important step to reduce patient waiting time. In addition, we are innovating to prioritize the municipalities with populations of extreme poverty, which need further attention by the government.

Among the states that receive more of these features are Sao Paulo, with R $ 124 million, followed by Minas Gerais, $ 60 million, and Rio de Janeiro, $ 49 million.

Cataracts have more resources for Bahia, R $ 9.1 million, to Maranhao, $ 7 million, and Ceara, R $ 5.8 million.

According to the Ministry of Health, elective surgeries have increased 1,135% in a decade. In 2001, 28 000 procedures. In 2011, 345 800.
