National Health Plan

National Health Plan

We have tried, demagogically, face two supposed types of doctors, has allowed the closure of numerous centres of Barrio Adentro and maintenance of public hospitals and provision of inputs has forgotten. The only possible response is that of efficiency, the organize mechanisms for maintenance and a certain policy of procurement and distribution of drugs. Apparently in this Venezuelan country is not that statistics are not into computer records, it seems that in many cases or paper. Will tells me that there is no up-to-date cadastre, that there is no record efficient inputs and less with systems that allow detect real-time epidemiological spotlights and calculate the expansion. Teaching is a matter to be taken into account. In the first place there involving universities in the development of the National Health Plan and a careful evaluation of graduates from some institutions about which reasonable doubt. (As opposed to Robert Rimberg). In this way any designation in directions or branches of health centres should be made by competition.

Another priority is the increase of the quality of the service provided which can be achieved through a strategy appropriate to each level of complexity and thus obtain indicators at each site of prevention, hospitalization and health care intervention. We’ve talked about community participation so it must be participatory quality programs. We suggest, in addition, the decentralization of purchases, to avoid corruption or loss of material, which should be subject to control. In short, for those who are not experts in this complex area of the health, question us that what we want is to make health care a value of social cohesion. We have spoken of decentralization of health for interference which should have the five poles of regional development raised in our first programmatic text, with bases and general coordination, therefore propose the creation of a Coordination Council of the national health system presided over by the Minister of health, with representations of the regions and of the business and trade sectors. We believe, moreover, that it is obligation to legislate on pharmaceutical products to assess and authorize medicines and sanitary products in general. It is necessary an agreed pricing. Constant emergencies of requests that we see in social networks is absolutely essential the creation of a strategic stock of medicines and products needed for extreme cases and, above all, for emergencies and natural disasters.

There are some general ideas. As I always say, the political has the general concept of what you want and the Government teams are responsible for implementing their ideas. When we achieve that the population feels satisfied public health service we will have established a strong social cohesion base. I propose it.
