nice info :) thank's

Sandro Melo

Nice article!

As well as education, infrastructure and others, the basic cause for this disaster in our public health system is the mother of all: corruption.

Billions of reais are robbed and/or misused every year by "politicians" and big contractors building hospitals and buying equipments (so they can have all kind of under the table agreements), while poor and ignorant people are dying every day.

Hope the next government will invest in education and the social medias will do their job, so we will be able to fight corruption accordingly.

Best, Sandro Melo
