The Brazilian Federal Supreme Court considers the More Doctors program constitutional

Thursday, November 30, 2017

The Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) dismissed, on this Thursday (30), the Direct Action for the Declaration of Unconstitutionality (ADI) 5035, which questions the legislation that created the More Doctors program. By majority, the justices rejected the request made by the Brazilian Medical Association (AMB), which requested the declaration of unconstitutionality of several points of Provisional Measure 691/2013, later converted into Law 12,871 / 2013.

The understanding adopted by Justice Alexandre de Moraes prevailed, which dismissed the main arguments presented by AMB. Among the issues discussed, the justice discussed health care, the need for validation of the foreign doctor's diploma, and the issue of the lack of equality in labor relations.
