SESAI, Conasems and Conass discuss indigenous health
The Special Secretary of Indigenous Health, Robson Santos da Silva, met on Wednesday morning (02/10) with the executive secretaries of the National Council of Municipal Health Secretariats (Conasems) and the National Council of Health Secretariats (Conass) to talk about the integration of states and municipalities in favor of indigenous health.
"We want to improve even more the services that are provided by Brazilian municipalities to our indigenous population, whether that population is served by SESAI, but also by that population served within the urban context, directly in the primary care of the municipalities," said Secretary Robson.
During the meetings, Secretary Robson presented the actions of the Special Secretariat of Indigenous Health (SESAI), pointed out the strong points and those that need more attention and showed the vaccinometer on the SESAI website, where it is possible to follow the percentage of indigenous people who have already been vaccinated against COVID-19.
"We will disseminate all the material and the website (of SESAI) because information is what we must pass on to municipal managers. Conasems is a partner and is available", said the Executive Secretary of Conasems, Mauro Guimarães Junqueira.
All the secretaries evaluated the meetings as positive. "We wanted to have this meeting for a long time. We want to work together so that we can have results and answers for what is an important point in the Unified Health System (SUS)", evaluated the Conass Executive Secretary, Jurandir Frutuoso.
At the end of the meetings, the Special Secretary of SESAI was invited to present the actions on indigenous health at the next meeting of the Tripartite Intermanagement Commission (CIT).
