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.
This study supports SDG 3 by investigating the association between increasing the quality of primary health care in Brazil, with highly-skilled health professionals and integrated community health workers, and reductions in hospitalisations and mortality. These findings suggest that high quality, multidisciplinary primary health care remains essential to strengthening health systems in both high-income countries and in low-income and middle-income countries.
