ALVES, Sandra Mara Campos et al. International cooperation and shortage of doctors: an analysis of the interaction between Brazil, Angola and Cuba. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.7, pp.2223-2235. ISSN 1413-8123.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1413-81232017227.03512017.

The shortage of doctors, especially in remote areas, is a critical issue for the development of national health systems and has thus been the focus of a number of international cooperation projects. An exploratory and qualitative study was conducted to examine cooperation between Brazil, Angola and Cuba. A nonsystematic literature review was conducted of selected open access articles and official documents addressing relevant health cooperation initiatives. Previously selected characteristics of actions designed to redress the shortage of doctors were compared. It was concluded that the interactions between the three countries were fruitful and potentially beneficial for the health of the population of these countries. South-South cooperation between these countries showed positive results in the educational and regulatory dimensions and adopted a non-dependence perspective that seeks to strengthen endogenous capacity, which are important factors for evaluating the structural components of health systems.
