This study supports SDG 3 and 10 by discussing possible determinants of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Brazilian health system through the lenses of health system resilience and geographical inequalities. The findings show that lack of proper planning to improve resilience resulted in the decrease of a quarter of the amount of health-care procedures, increasing already existing health disparities in the country and highlighting the need to allocate resources in socioeconomically vulnerable regions to reduce avoidable deaths.
