Alexandre Padilha, Minister of Health, during the National Meeting of New Mayors and Mayors

The federal government will use U.S. $ 1.6 billion for construction, renovation and expansion of basic health units. The announcement was made on Tuesday (29) by Health Minister Alexandre Padilha, during the National Meeting in New Mayors and Mayors. We want to bring quality healthcare to the neighborhoods where people live, said.

The goal is to build 1,253 units, expand and reform 5629 4348 in 2013. There are reserves of $ 1.2 billion for the purchase of equipment. In 2012, 5458 units were extended into 2256 municipalities, reaching R $ 548 million in investments. Today there are over 38 000 basic health units throughout the country.

The ministry also announced that from next month, municipalities may join the Service Modernization Program. The application, made by the internet, enables the increase in value costing of basic health units, according to the performance of the teams. We will have more resources for those with good performance, Padilha said.

Another action proposed by the ministry stipulates that each primary care unit, with at least one team participating in the modernization program, has internet access by 2014. The investments in the area are expected to total $ 45 million. The idea is to allow each municipality to improve monitoring in emergency and outpatient clinics, providing better patient care and controlling costs.
