By Conceição Lemes

We are lower than 24 hours away from the begin of the Free, Democratic and Popular Health Conference 2022.

It takes place this Friday, 05/08, in São Paulo. It is a preparatory step for the seventeenth National Health Conference of 2023.

On Saturday, 07/30, the state degree of the Free, Democratic and Popular Health Conference was held in São Luís.

The companions have been: National Network of Doctors and Popular Physicians (RNMP), municipal and state well being councils, Permanent Consumer Forum, UFMA Public Health Graduate Program and Landless Workers Movement (MST), amongst different teams. .

The convention represented greater than an occasion, in response to a number of testimonies from members.

“It has already characterised a motion in favor of the SUS in the state, bringing collectively new and previous troopers”, studies infectious illness physician Bernardo Wittlin, from the National Network of Physicians and Popular Doctors.

The desk “SUS: Why shield him?” made by:

William Vieira, director basic of major care, representing the Secretary of Health Tiago José Mendes Fernandes.

Ruth Helena from Souza Brittoprofessor of the public well being postgraduate program at the Federal University of Maranhão (UFMA).

Carlos Lulaformer Health Secretary of Maranhão and former president of Conass (National Council of Health Secretaries).

I had entry to Carlos Lula’s speech.

It was superb, as you may see in the video at the high.

So, I assumed it was essential to rewrite most of it. The daring ones are mine.

It is very important that we’ve this dialogue at this time. We made a mistake years in the past when he believed, after what occurred in the 70’s, in the 80’s and in the building of the mannequin we had in 1988, that was given. People believed that was sufficient. We by no means imagined that somebody would deliver themselves to need to demolish the largest social safety system in Brazilian historical past.

AN The whole historical past of well being in Brazil is accompanied by a historical past of exclusion. The story of letting go. The story goes: Well, those that have cash can take care of their well being, those that do not will anyway.

Historically, the 1988 Constitution is the first structure that treats well being without any consideration.

The building of well being without any consideration is comparatively latest in Brazilian historical past. Many occasions we have been not used to it. So a lot in order that the Judge does not know how you can take care of it correctly, that judicial requests are nonetheless concerned in giving this proper, the metropolis and state secretaries all through historical past are nonetheless of their infancy to attempt to create a system that excludes virtually everybody. to say “now, everybody has the proper to every part”. What is the built-in well being system? That is the prediction of universality.

It is essential to restart the sanitation motion and say that the SUS is vital and important.

I had the honor of being the Secretary of Health of this state for nearly six years. I needed to come throughout the worst ministers of well being in the historical past of the nation. They have been not simply deniers, their ears are closed to take heed to any criticism, any thought. They are not open to any variety of dialog.

Then, in 2019, When did this catastrophe start that Bolsonaro’s authorities – a catastrophe from a social, financial and well being level of view – I used to be very afraid that the SUS would fall there.

oh the card was a debate in the Ministry of Health: “Here right here [o SUS] not good Let us change it with a personal system. People get a card they usually purchase a service at a personal hospital”.

This insanity was a debate we had at the National Congress in January 2019. To the extent that Minister Mandetta requested for our assist, the few controllers towards: “assist me, individuals need to finish the SUS”

Despite all the restrictions we had on the conduct of Minister Mandetta, he was a defender of the SUS however he did not have the braveness to do it publicly, he did it privately. oh It was the challenge of this mannequin that was created there in 1988.

we’ve two antagonistic initiatives from Brazil that we will debate in 64 days.

Far from pondering that President Lula had an ideal authorities, as a result of he did not, it is full of flaws.

But it is fully antagonistic at this level.

oh This is not the time to debate the SUS mannequin, it is to think about whether the SUS will exist or not..

This is not the time to debate a mannequin of democracy. Whether or not there will be a democracy is up for debate.

We should resist all initiatives which can be genocidal, which can be authoritarian, which can be undemocratic, that do not need to see the SUS robust and ample. Because the SUS is simply the reverse.

Why defend the SUS?

Because the SUS solely exists as a result of of democracy.

SUS solely exists as a result of of inclusion.

The SUS is an inclusive, common, public mannequin of public well being that we need to present high quality.

SUS is the largest human rights program in the historical past of this nation.

He is the one who introduced in additional individuals, saved extra lives.

We should say this with all the letters, on daily basis: SUS is inclusion, SUS is life, SUS is democracy
