[Editorial] Are Brazilian elections healthy without a plan for UHC?

On Oct 7, Brazilians held the first round of voting to elect a new president. With the backdrop of economic and political crisis, the election has been closely contested with a particular focus on crime and corruption. That has left little airtime to debate health-care policy at a precipitous time for the Brazilian National Health System (Sistema Único de Saúde), which faces a number of challenges. Persistent underfunding and weakening exchange rates have led to shortages of basic medicines and hospital beds, as described in a Lancet World Report.
