In the same publication, Pimenta recalled that the program created by the then president Dilma Rousseff, it became responsible for 100% of primary care in 1,039 municipalities, hired more than 18,000 professionals and benefited 63 million Brazilians. “The dismantling of the program in recent years shows the neglect suffered by the SUS“, he added. In the new format, the expectation is that incentives will be announced for professionals to stay in the municipalities.
