Although Brazil’s health sector has presented significant developments in recent years, its infrastructure is still precarious, especially in the north and northeast regions. Brazil is still far from achieving a democratic health system with universal coverage and access. For example, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), Brazil has 17.6 doctors per 10,000 inhabitants, which is below the WHO average and half the ratio of that in Europe. For this reason, BrazilFoundation invests in social organizations devoted to health.

We support innovative social technologies that focus on prevention and improving access to healthcare, as well as those that scale successful solutions.
