Recently, the Federal Government announced the Program More Doctors for Brazil, establishing professional graduates coming out of the country without revalidating diploma, circumventing the legal framework. For the same Provisional, 621-2013, seeks to establish that medical students are obliged to provide services to the Unified Health System (SUS) for a period of two years, often without any basic infrastructure and supervision required.

Attitudes like these reckless endanger the health of the population and so have been harshly criticized by medical organizations. By academia and various sectors of civil society. But then, what would be the solution to the shortage of doctors in remote regions?

Forward to local doctors who lack the minimum conditions for public service is throwing money down the drain. The health care alone will not magically solve the precariousness of public assistance. Think that this problem will be solved is to simplify something that is much higher. SUS lack infrastructure, medicines, ancillary staff trained and not just doctors. Who uses know very well what I'm talking about.

A smart alternative would be to create a system in which municipalities concerned, then enroll in the Health Ministry, receive visits from representatives of an evaluation committee formed by elements of the government, medical organizations and specialty societies to judge whether the city has the requirements essential to the work of the physician. So it would be possible to document the portrait of the local SUS, which would address the priority investments.

Thus, the improvement would be really effective, because when the requirements were met certainly there is no lack doctors.

Another option is to formulate a program that graduates of Medicine serve the military and thus contribute to the NHS. Always pondering whether the location provides physical support and supervision sufficient to exercise the profession worthy.

Rather than assume an authoritarian stance, our leaders could hear health professionals, after all we live in a democracy where, theoretically, everyone's voice should be taken into consideration.

We can think together on practical solutions to the situation. In plain language: honestly, the Brazilian people are tired of palliative measures.
