The Goiás State Health Council (CES-GO) promoted, this Thursday (26/8), the first ‘live’ of the Ponto de Equilíbrio project, Permanent Education for Social Control of SUS. The event, which was led by the president of CES, Venerando Lemes, brought together specialists to discuss the topic Municipal Health Plan (PMS).

The meeting also had the participation of the CES technical coordinator, Neusinho Ferreira; the advisor of the Council of Municipal Health Departments of the State of Goiás (Cosems), Lucélia Borges; the advisor of the Goiás State Health Department (SES-GO), Simone Camilo; and the coordinator of Planning for SUS Management at SES-GO, Edilberto Alexandre.

Venering Lemes reported that an advance for municipal health planning was the change, as of this year, of the date of the health conferences, which subsidize the elaboration of health plans. These city, regional and state events will be held prior to the national conference. “The National Health Conference is scheduled to take place in May 2023. The municipal ones, from the end of 2022 to February 2023; and the regional and state, until April”, clarified.

Lucélia, a technician at Cosems, highlighted the importance of planning for municipal management. “If I don’t plan (…), everyone will do it their own way. And that takes away the possibility of you having projects and goals that need to be fulfilled to meet the needs of that reality. Most of the time, they are chasing urgencies and emergencies that overwhelm the entire process and the daily routine of municipal management”, she highlighted.

Simone Camilo stated that municipal health planning is a challenge, as 63% of the municipalities in Goiás have less than 10,000 inhabitants; and 40%, less than 5 thousand inhabitants. “How to plan just for the municipality? Therefore, the importance of integrated regional planning, of the macro-region of health, to think as a macro, to subsidize these municipal plans, so that they can base the macro-regional plans in an acceding way”, she evaluated.

A document that gathers and organizes the municipal government’s action proposals for the health area, the PMN offers solutions related to the needs and problems of the local population. Its preparation, which involves technical, political and economic issues, should cover the collection and analysis of information on the health situation in the municipality.
