The Ministry of Health announced on Tuesday (21) that by the end of the year, 4000 Cuban doctors will get to Brazil to work in cities that do not attract individually registered professionals in More Doctors. On Monday arrive 400 professionals, who will go through the same process of evaluating physicians with foreign diploma and without revalidating diploma enrolled in the first stage of the program.

Neither the Ministry of Health, or the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), which will broker the deal with the Cuban government, they can tell how much these professionals will get the job. "The ministry passes the same unit value and is Opas that will make trading with Cuba," said Health Minister Alexandre Padilha, adding that the agreement between PAHO and Cuba. The minister stressed that doctors will meet the demand of the 701 municipalities that were not selected by any doctor in the first edition of the program.

The two institutions also reported that it is the Cuban government that decides whether professionals will be able to bring his family to Brazil. The minister pointed out that, as with other professionals, feeding and housing of doctors are the responsibility of municipalities that receive them.

On October 4, 2000 More Cuban doctors should arrive in the country to a new stage. Just like those who signed up individually, the Cuban doctors who come by according to PAHO will not need to go through revalidation (Revalidation of Doctors Diplomas dispatched by Higher Education Institutions) and therefore will have provisional registration for three years to act on primary and validity restricted to the site where they are assigned.

Padilla said that all doctors will come in this first step has already participated in other international missions and have expertise in family and community medicine. More than 84% of them have over 16 years of experience in medicine.

According to Padilla, the agreement that the Brazilian government has with Opas allows the entity to make partnerships with other countries and organizations. The folder will invest $ 511 million until February 2014 with the arrival of Cuban doctors.

In the first edition, the Program More Physicians selected 1,618 professionals to work in public 579 network stations in cities from the countryside and suburbs of large cities. Of this total, 1,096 doctors have Brazilian diploma and 522 are overseas trained doctors. Program participants represent 10.5% of the 15,460 professionals needed according to the demand presented by the municipalities. The balance sheet was released today (14) by the Ministry of Health

All doctors with foreign diploma and without revalidation will go through three weeks of training, focusing on the operation of the Unified Health System (SUS) and in Portuguese, before they started work. During the operation, will work supervised by universities.
