Brazilian Ministry of Health approves BRL 5.7 million for hospitals to strengthen and improve services offered
The Brazilian Ministry of Health will transfer BRL 5.7 million to 186 institutions located in 17 states to strengthen and qualify the services offered to the population by the holy houses and charity organizations. The institutions will benefit from the funds raised from Timemania of competitions held by the Caixa Economica Federal, which allocates 3% of the total collection of games for the Unified Health System (SUS).
