Brazilian Indians Get US$ 2.8 Million for Health Care

Health care will be reinforced for Indians who live in eleven Brazilian states. The National Health Foundation (Funasa) announced that it will invest US$ 810 thousand (2.3 million reais) to contract health professionals to take care of this population.

With this measure, the Ministry of Health will begin to transfer US$ 2.84 million (R$ 7.9 million) each month to provide for the health needs of the indigenous population in 287 Brazilian municipalities.


“This increase will enable 52 more muncipalities to hire teams, in addition to raising the amount transferred to another 83 municipalities that already provided care and needed to expand their teams,” said the president of the Funasa, Valdi Camarcio Bezerra.


The municipalities receiving the funds will be able to count on teams consisting of physicians, nurses, dentists, nutritionists, and indigenous health and sanitation agents.
