Sesai launches project to fill vacancies in Internal Selection Processes
The proposal aims to value the professionals working in the districts and who are able to perform new functions
The Special Secretariat of Indigenous Health (SESAI) is constantly working on issues related to the workers who work in indigenous health. With this, it is launching a new possibility to fill the vacancies foreseen in the Work Plans of the 34 Special Indigenous Sanitary Districts (DSEI): the Internal Selection Processes.
The DSEI, together with the contracted entities, will be able to carry out internal selection processes for the hiring of professionals within the district itself, who are able to perform new activities, such as, for example, changing the function of Indigenous Health Agent (AIS) for Nursing Technicians, or even from Nursing Technicians to Nurses.
Some conditions must be considered in order for the DSEI to be able to open these selection notices, such as the inexistence of a reserve register in force for the positions with open vacancies.
The internal selection processes may occur annually, and workers who have been contracted to work for the DSEI for more than a year and who have not received any warnings during this period will be eligible to apply for the vacancies in question. For performance evaluation, objective and practical tests will be applied to the candidates, for a better assessment of the functions inherent to the positions in question.
This is SESAI working towards valuing the indigenous health workers, and seeking more transparency and objectivity in the selection processes.
Health Professionals and Primary Care
In 2020 alone, SESAI hired 1,233 health professionals to work in the villages. In 2021, more than 2,110 professionals are being hired.
Throughout the pandemic period, SESAI has developed strategies to improve the service. To offer more agility in emergency situations, the Secretariat authorized the hiring of Rapid Response Teams (ERR) to work directly in the DSEI. Composed of a doctor, a nurse, and a nursing technician, the team remains at the disposal of means of transport - land, river, and air - these teams can be taken to points in the districts where there are problems related to covid-19. In total, 311 professionals have been hired to make up these teams.
