the senator Humberto Costa (PT-PE) was in the 6th National Conference on Indigenous Healthin Brasilia, and received a request to recompose Budget resources for the government area that takes care of the health of the so-called native peoples.
According to a report delivered to the parliamentarian, the situation of the 34 indigenous health districts in the country is precarious, given that 60% of resources were cut in the last year, resulting in a shortage of medicines. “An ongoing genocide,” he said. “We are going to change this tragic situation in which our indigenous people were placed by this nefarious government of Bolsonaro.”
Costa stated that he participated in the conference on behalf of Lula’s transitional government. He stated that the recomposition of the budget for the area of indigenous health should be included in the so-called Transition PEC.
The parliamentarian said that the working group of the transitional cabinet intends to have a meeting next week with the Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga.
