"We did not have Single Health Care System. We started from a situation where people who needed health care were destitute and depended on the philanthropy to resolve the situation of citizens with rights. And for that there was never enough money. I usually say it is the 'all for all '. And no other World Country dared to make that promise. Do we have a problem? Yes we have a problem, but people today who do not know how it used to be, tend to see only the problems, but we have improved a lot. "

Difficulties created by chronic dependence on foreign labs led to an innovative decision: Brazil now has a state-owned company exclusively to research, develop and produce medicinal products derived from blood.

Hemobrás, the Brazilian blood product and biotechnology company, is close to completing construction of a plant in Pernambuco. When the facility is up and running, it will produce medications to safeguard the lives of hemophiliacs and people with genetic immunodeficiency, cancer, cirrhosis, AIDS and severe burns treatment through the Single Health System.
