We can not allow political interests underlings, financial and market themselves decide the direction and future of a model rooted in our Constitution and that belongs to the 190 million Brazilians. Thus ends the Manifesto of Bethlehem, adopted at the closing plenary of the first National Medical Boards, which ended on Friday (8), in the state capital.

The document, approved by acclamation, comes out in defense of the Unified Health System (SUS) public, full, free, quality and accessible to the entire population.

In the message directed to the Nation of doctors, representatives of the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) and 27 Regional Councils of Medicine (CRMs) indicate actions by the Federal Government announced that, in his assessment, if implemented could jeopardize the future of the health system Brazilian.

Among the concerns of the Board of Medicine is the possibility of entry of foreign doctors and Brazilians with degrees obtained abroad without revalidation to meet their respective national territory.

The authorities consider that this measure violates legal regulations and puts the quality of care at risk by not allowing the measurement of competence and ability of these professionals.

It is proposed improvised immediacy and media, which ignores the structural issues of medical work in the National Health System (SUS) and also revalidates, exam created by the Government which has rightly assessed the competence and ability of those physicians interested in acting in the country, says the document.

The entities have also criticized the lack of a career State to the doctor, considered viable approach to the coverage effective assistance of voids in the cities or in more distant suburbs of large cities.

This proposal, which was formally presented to the Ministry of Health, predicts that by creating this career the Government will offer the doctor a functional policy (continuing education, career progression, adequate remuneration) and mainly working infrastructure (facilities, beds, equipment, supplies, network access qualified to refer patients, etc.).

Finally, the Boards of Medicine strongly criticized the possibility of closer relations between the government and the health insurance providers. The intention to reduce taxes, provide subsidies and allocate public resources for health plan operators, as announced after meetings with representatives of the Government sector entrepreneurs, demonstrates, in a contradictory way, favoring the private sphere to the detriment of the public in providing health care, whose practice has been made under the sign of underfunding public federal, primarily responsible for the difficulties of the SUS, the statement said.

Manifesto of Bethlehem

A message from the doctors to the Brazilian nation

The Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) and 27 Regional Councils of Medicine (CRMs), meeting in Belém (PA), expressed their rejection to the actions announced recently by the Federal Government which violated constitutional guidelines and achievements of public health. The authorities warned the Brazilian society for measures with which we disagree, which if implemented could jeopardize the future of the Brazilian health system:

1) The entry of foreign doctors and irresponsible Brazilians with medical degrees obtained abroad without their respective revalidation hurts the legal standard, puts the quality of care to the population at risk and does not guarantee the expansion of access to definitive care areas difficult to uphold. It is proposed improvised immediacy and media, which ignores the structural issues of medical work in the National Health System (SUS) and also revalidates, exam created by the Government which has rightly assessed the competence and ability of those physicians interested in acting in the country;

2) The absence of a career of state for medical SUS, with the prediction of infrastructure and adequate working conditions for professionals, prevents the effective presence of doctors and improve medical care in small towns and suburbs of large cities. Only the implementation of this career will bring effective solution for filling the voids definitive care;

3) The intention to reduce taxes, provide subsidies and allocate public resources for health plan operators, as announced after meetings with representatives of the Government sector entrepreneurs, demonstrates, in a contradictory way, favoring the private sphere over the public the provision of health care, whose practice has been made under the sign of underfunding public federal, primarily responsible for the difficulties of the SUS;

4) The Boards of Medicine SUS public advocate, full, free, quality and accessible to the entire population. Therefore, we demand the fulfillment of a minimum agenda, which includes the allocation of 10% of the revenue of the Union for the health and improvement of public services, providing them with infrastructure and human resources to meet recovered effectively the population;

We urge the Legislature, the Judiciary, the Public Ministry; medical organizations and health care; parliamentarians, universities, the press, and all movements of civil society organizations to irmanarem this crusade in defense of a public system quality health care as one of the greatest corporate assets of the nation. We can not allow political interests underlings, financial and market themselves decide the direction and future of a model rooted in our Constitution and that belongs to the 190 million Brazilians.
