Health care in Brazil : addressing complexity : La sante au Bresil : s'attaquer a la complexite du systeme (French)

World Bank health programs in Brazil have been relevant, but results have been uneven, according to a recent study by the Operations Evaluation Department (OED). Bank-supported programs have helped to control the spread of serious tropical diseases, improved access to health services in poor areas, and contributed to the construction of a system for epidemiological surveillance. But while projects in disease control and basic health services have targeted important and relevant concerns, critical challenges remain to be addressed, including persistent inequities and inefficiencies in the financing of the considerable challenges of the Brazilian health sector, the Bank should work to establish the kind of strong and consistent presence that is requited to build - gradually, but persistently - a broad-based coalition for reform.
