Advance in Health

In his last act as governor of Rio Grande do Sul, Eduardo Leite announced, this Thursday (3/31), another R$ 120 million in investments in the health area through the third phase of the Advance in Health program. Of this amount, R$ 100 million will be allocated to the renovation and expansion of Basic Health Units (UBSs) included in the Bem Cuidar Network (RBC), in 76 municipalities in Rio Grande do Sul, and R$ 20 million in the Rio Grande do Sul hospital network, benefiting 28 institutions.

“Each one of the stages was pulling new projects. Municipalities were not used to thinking about projects and seeking support because they had no expectation that the State would be able to support reforms and new equipment. You came to Porto Alegre to demand that what was owed be paid and we went further. We managed to contribute another R$ 120 million in this third phase, investing in prevention and primary care and also in high complexity”, explained the governor.

Adding the three stages of the program, the government has already guaranteed R$ 469.1 million of resources from the Treasury for the improvement of health services in all regions of the state. The amount is intended for works and acquisition of equipment for the qualification of the hospital network, pharmaceutical assistance and basic health units. It is the largest investment ever made in health in the state in the last 20 years.

“We worked hard to make this new stage of the Advance program concrete. We prioritize the Rede Bem Cuidar, an innovative policy that will leave a legacy in the public health of the State. Another priority was the hospital network, as we saw, when traveling through Rio Grande do Sul, how much the expansion works and new equipment are decisive. The hallmark of this government will be the good policies that value the promotion of health”, highlighted the Secretary of Health, Arita Bergmann.

In this step of the Advance, the resources will be applied to the qualification of the urgency and emergency network and in the maternal-infant network, that is, in the emergency care, maternity and neonatal Intensive Care Units (ICUs) of hospitals. In the case of the UBSs, those that joined the Bem Cuidar Network and had not yet been included were chosen, according to population cut and submission of proposal according to the program’s public notices. Each municipality will receive up to BRL 350,000 for the expansion of the structure and up to BRL 200,000 for renovation.

“This is the legacy we left. From a state that could not pay the salary of civil servants and service providers on time and that had increased rates to a state that has already invested R$ 6.3 billion with state resources in all strategic areas of the government”, said Leite, when he said goodbye to the governorship of Rio Grande do Sul.
