KEMPER, Elisandréa Sguario; MENDONCA, Ana Valeria Machado e SOUSA, Maria Fátima de. The Mais Médicos (More Doctors) Program: panorama of the scientific output. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.9, pp.2785-2796. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1413-81232015219.17842016.
Despite the progress achieved by the Primary Health Care and Family Health Strategy in the Unified Health System (SUS) challenges still remain with regard to the universality of access and the quality of services, one of the factors being the unequal distribution of physicians. The Brazilian Government established the Mais Médicos Program (More Doctors Program), in order to move forward in the provision, placement and training of physicians in the SUS. This study consists of a review of the literature of the Mais Médicos Program, in order to map and assess the scientific production on the Program, as well as summarize the findings and present the results of the analysis. Fifty-four publications were selected, which evaluate the Program in terms of effectiveness, analysis of the implementation process, the media and the statements of the actors and assessment of the legal and constitutional precepts. The criticisms and limitations found were also systematically analyzed. With respect to the analysis, evaluations of the Program are overwhelmingly positive, showing important changes in the work processes in services and training. The studies that show the Program as being an important instrument for the effective implementation of the right to health are highlighted.
