"We must avoid the unacceptable risk of allowing innovation to foster inequalities," declared Carlos Gadelha, Secretary of Science, Technology, and Strategic Inputs, Ministry of Health, Brazil.
To ensure equity across income strata, he urged his peers to engage in innovative partnerships, buttressed by significant investment, andâ€”most importantlyâ€”to think big. Through large-scale initiatives, he continued, "We can induce â€˜global symmetry' to address global health needs." He reminded Summit participants that vaccines are a key strategic product that allowed Brazil to address health, poverty, and development, while delivering tremendous economic opportunities.
The Department of Science and Technology (DECIT) at the Brazilian Ministry of Health (MoH) is responsible for promoting research to improve the health system. Its primary challenge is to guarantee scientific and technological development as an important and permanent tool for guiding the country to an evidence-based SUS that promotes universality, integrity and equity.
