Bimonthly newsletter of the Fiocruz Global Health Center (Cris/Fiocruz)

October / 2019
The partnership has established the reduction of preventable maternal deaths to zero by 2030 as a goal in the African and Latin American countries involved. The cooperation also plans to implement a Reference Center for Maternal Health of the ICPD at Fiocruz. The results and commitments of the meeting will be taken to the Nairobi Summit, that will discuss de 25 years of the Internacional Conference on Population and Development.
Fiocruz has mapped the impact of fires on children’s health in the Amazon region. The survey concluded that in the areas most affected by the fire, the number of children hospitalized with respiratory problems doubled. This resulted in an additional expense of more than R$ 1.5 million faced by the Brazilian Public Health System (SUS).
The action will be coordinated by the Fiocruz Brazilian Human Milk Bank Network, which is considered an international reference. Together, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa represent 42% of the world population, that will benefit from an important strategy for reducing infant deaths.
The plan aims to accelerate the fulfilment of the health targets of the 2030 Agenda and was developed by twelve multilateral agencies, with the collaboration of the president of Fiocruz.
With Fiocruz collaboration, the report gathers evidence of the relationship between health and social factors, such as socioeconomic class, ethnic group, gender, sexual orientation, disability, migrant situation.
The Symposium "A Health Cooperation Agenda" marked Fiocruz's 120th anniversary celebration and the 80th anniversary of CNRS and gathered social scientists that study Global Health issues.
The cooperation plans to involve teaching, research and technological development projects to combat neglected diseases such as Leprosy, Chagas disease, malaria and sickle cell disease.
After a pause of more than two years in the export of yellow fever vaccines, Brazil has resumed its installed capacity, by means of Fiocruz, to meet 100% of the national demand as well as to sell to other countries. The announcement was made during the Developing Countries Vaccine Manufacturers Network (DCVMN) Internacional Summit.
The study published by The Lancet Global Health showed that this relation was evidenced in municipalities that allocated fewer resources for the Bolsa Familia and had lower per capita health expenditures.
"The trajectory of the development and expansion of the SUS offers valuable lessons on how to scale universal health coverage in a highly unequal country with relatively low resources", says the article published by The Lancet.
