Dilma Rousseff, president of Brazil, signed the law establishing within 60 days for patients with cancer receive treatment in the first SUS.

It was published on Friday (23), no Diário Oficial da União, the new law signed by President Dilma Rousseff establishing a period of 60 days for patients with cancer receiving treatment at the first National Health System (SUS) .

The text also provides for a period less than 60 days, according to the therapeutic needs of the case. The deadline will be considered completed when it actually start treatment (surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy).

Another important measure brought by the project is the provision of access "free and privileged" to analgesics derived from opium for cancer patients who are suffering from pain.

The bill also establishes an obligation for states to develop regional plans for the installation of specialized services in oncology, so that areas not contemplated thereafter have access to these services.

The original proposition, the former Senator Osmar Dias, had only about drug treatment with analgesics, such as morphine. In the House, the scope was expanded to include the mandatory offer by SUS to cancer patients, within 60 days, in addition to other treatments available analgesics, such as surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

According to the rapporteur of the matter, Senator Ana Amelia (PP-RS), the new law will benefit women who suffer with the disease.

Also according to the text, the noncompliance will subject managers directly and indirectly responsible for administrative penalties. The law goes into effect 180 days after its publication.
