Abstract

SOARES, Adilson. Training and challenges for the health care system in Brazil: an analysis of investments to expand health care service delivery. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.7, pp. 1565-1572. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2007000700007.

The goal of this study is to discuss the investments made by the Brazilian government to expand health care service delivery in the Unified National Health System (SUS) from 1995 to 2001. The data indicate a mismatch between investments to increase service delivery and maintenance and optimization of the health service network's capacity. The paper concludes that there is a need to guarantee financial maintenance of the system and conduct new investments based on an analysis of the installed capacity and the financial possibilities to guarantee resources for continuous delivery of this additional services supply.
