MAZON, Luciana Maria; COLUSSI, Claudia Flemming; SENFF, Carlos Otávio  and  FREITAS, Sérgio Fernando Torres de. Financial execution of health financing blocks in the municipalities of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Saúde debate [online]. 2018, vol.42, n.116, pp.38-51. ISSN 2358-2898.

The use of the resources transferred from other federative instances to health financing blocks by the municipalities of Santa Catarina was analyzed. This is a descriptive study of the years 2009 and 2015. It was observed that municipalities invest their own health resources well beyond what is legally recommended, however, they cannot make full use of the direct transfer resources made by the state and the Union to the blocks of health financing. It is noted, however, a significant reduction in the amount of resources underutilized in the analyzed period, which indicates an improvement in the capacity to manage direct transfer resources.
