Research developed at the University of Brasilia (UNB) reveals that the relationship between public health systems and private Brazilian needs to be revised. According to the study, Brazil collects taxes to support the public health system, but data from the World Health Organisation (WHO) show that 54% of spending in this area are from the private sector. This means that the $ 921 that Brazilians spend on health care each year, $ 401 is spent by the public sector and 520 private-sector. "There is therefore a double because bancamos the public system and pay private plans to ensure quality care, explains the researcher responsible for the study, Parizi Regina Carvalho.

As a basis for the expense of Brazil in healthcare, research cites the UK, also with assistance universalist (unrestricted to all citizens) like Brazil, where every citizen spends on average per year, $ 2,893 and public investment is 84%.

With regard to Latin America, Brazil has a reasonable investment, research shows. The country is at the same level of Argentina, for example.

In the United States, which have a different system, each citizen spends annually $ 3,700 on health expenses. These data are for 2009 and are part of a report by the World Health Organization (WHO) and published in 2012.

In the Netherlands, the richest 30% pay their private plans because the state does not provide the subsidized portion of the population

According to the study, European countries decided in different ways the issue of duplication of health spending. In the Netherlands, the richest 30% pay their private plans because the state does not provide the subsidized portion of the population. In Germany, citizens should opt for public or private. In France, the health system is public, but supplemented by private insurance, especially in the purchase of medicines and medical consultations.

Data presented by UNB revealed that in the five regions of the country and there is a direct proportional relationship between the number of doctors and quantity of services and offerings of health plans. According to figures from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), on average, each family spends Brazilian about 6% of its budget on health.

According to the World Health Organization, worldwide, 150 million people pay private health care out of pocket. The implication is that each year 100 million are pushed below the poverty line due to health care that need paying. This relationship is evil and has to change, the researcher argued.

Another impressive data presented in the study is the number of lawsuits filed in Brazil on health matters: 112,324 in 2010, according to the National Council of Justice (CNJ). The complaints are directed to both health plans and for the Unified Health System (SUS).
