“The SUS is therefore an integrated health system, which serves the various services of low, medium and high complexity, with a unique information system which, every day, stands out for its capillarity and its ability to overcome adversity” , did he declare.

The seminar was scientifically coordinated by Minister STJ Moura Ribeiro, who underlined the importance of the debate regarding the dialogue between support foundations and university hospitals within the framework of the SUS. “We are talking about health care for people who need to live with dignity, under article 1, point III, of our Federal Constitution,” he stressed.

Also present at the opening, STJ Minister Paulo de Tarso Sanseverino drew attention to the potential for the evolution of health services in Brazil based on dialogue between the public and private systems. “The advances that are often made in the field of private medicine end up being transferred to public health,” he observed.

The opening of the meeting also took place in the presence of Councilor Richard Pae Kim, of the National Council of Justice (CNJ); the director-president of the USP School of Medicine Foundation, Arnaldo Hossepian Junior, and the dean of Unisa, Luciane Lúcio Pereira.
