Municipalities that suffer from a lack of doctors in the country will begin receiving the first professionals selected by the Program More Doctors

In ten days, cities that suffer from a lack of doctors in the country will begin receiving the first professionals selected by the Program More Doctors.

On Thursday (22), in São Paulo, representatives from the Municipal Health Department, who live in anticipation of an immediate solution to the shortage of professionals had the opportunity to clarify details about the program and prepare for arrival of doctors.

On September 2, start working the 55 selected Brazilian and, on the 16th, it will be the 47 foreigners. They will perform in 27 cities located in. The number, however, serves only 5% of the demand indicated by the municipalities. Among the key questions outlined in activity, which was convened by the Ministry of Health, was the issue of costs that should be borne by municipalities, such as housing and food.

The Secretary of Health Surveillance, Ministry of Health, Jarbas Barbosa, clarified that they were not set minimum or maximum values ​​for costing. "The realities of the country are very different. Unable to say that an amount considered good for Sao Paulo will be the same for a city of Amazonas, for example. Therefore left to the discretion of the city make this decision," he explained.

The representatives were also informed that it is the responsibility of municipalities to provide medical transfer from the airport to the city which provide the service. "They are the counterparts," explained Barbosa. Discounts purse, thirteenth salary and Social Security costs were part of the block of questions from managers. The Secretary explained that the net salary will be £ 10,000, to be paid in 12 installments during the year. "The security is the responsibility of the federal government. No need for any other type of contract," he said.

The municipality of Biritiba Mirim, about 85 km from the state capital, asked three doctors and be entertained. "We have a lot of trouble to keep these professionals. Had it been a month and went away. Turnover is very high," he lamented. Now, she hopes that the advantages offered in the program may fix the doctors for a longer time. "I do not know if it will be different now, but we're betting. According to the secretary, the city has about 30,000 inhabitants and is dependent on federal programs to provide health services.

Estela Gianesella, Secretary of Health of Bragança Paulista, about 90 km from São Paulo, estimates that, currently, local governments are hostages of doctors. "There is a real fight between the municipalities. Last month, we had to pay a bonus, because the hall neighbor was already offering a higher salary," he reported. She pointed out that the presence of a medical school in the city helps keep doctors in the region, but it does not solve the problem completely. "After graduation, they get a time in the Family Health Program, but then change."

The city of Bragança Paulista tried to ask five professionals to serve in rural units, but failed to register because these units do not belong to the Family Health. "We can not register at this stage, but we were told that this kind of situation will be analyzed by the ministry. Meanwhile, I'm no doctor [in the countryside]," he explained. She said, however, that the situation in urban areas is less complicated. "There are moments that lack, but we have so much trouble," he said.

Secretary of Arujá, Clarinda Carneiro, is all set to welcome the three doctors who will go to the city. "We ask 13 but we were not completely met. As the program continues, we expect to be addressed in the coming months," he said. She said get two Brazilian doctors and a Cuban. "Even one of the Brazilians is a doctor 80 years, resident of Guarulhos. Highlight This is cool.'ve Kept in touch with them and we are awaiting the arrival."

Clarinda expects the coming of foreign doctors balance the supply of physicians in the market. "It has a lot of jobs, so they are as appropriate. Nowadays the public service works like beak, there is this culture. They earn the same or even less in particular, but there they meet schedule. This is unfortunate," he criticized.
