INTRODUCTION: The Mais Médicos program was introduced in 2013 with the aim of reducing the shortage of doctors in priority regions and diminishing regional inequalities in health. One of the strategies has been to offer 3-year contracts for doctors to work in primary healthcare services in small towns, inland, rural, remote, and socially vulnerable areas. This report describes the program's implementation and the allocation of doctors to these target areas in 2014. METHODS: To describe the provision of doctors in the first year of implementation, we compared the doctor-to-population ratio in the 5570 municipalities of Brazil before and after the program, based on the Federal Board of Medicine database (2013), and the official dataset provided by the Ministry of Health (2014)...

The Program More Doctors (Programa Mais Médicos) aims to decrease the shortage of physicians and reduce the regional health disparities and involves three main strategies: i) more places and new Medical Courses based on the revised Curriculum Guidelines; ii) investments in the (re)construction of Primary Healthcare Units; iii) provision of Brazilian and foreign medical doctors. Until July 2014, the Program made the provision of 14,462 physicians to 3,785 municipalities with vulnerable areas. Evidence indicates a 53% reduction in the number of municipalities with physicians' shortage; in the North, 91% of the municipalities with physicians' shortage have been provisioned, with almost five physicians per municipality, on average...

The Mais Médicos program (involving the influx of Cuban physicians) has been a topic of heated debate in the media, mainly due to the difference of opinion between the government and the medical profession. The population in general is left in a climate of anxiety and uncertainty. This paper discusses the misconceptions that have been misleading and confusing the actors involved in the conflict surrounding the program in question.
