MOROSINI, Márcia Valéria Guimarães Cardoso; FONSECA, Angélica Ferreira  and  LIMA, Luciana Dias de. National Policy of Primary Healthcare 2017: setbacks and risks to the Unified Health System. Saúde debate [online]. 2018, vol.42, n.116, pp.11-24. ISSN 2358-2898.

The article discusses the meanings and implications of the changes introduced by the National Policy of Primary Healthcare 2017, which promote the relativization of universal coverage, the segmentation of access, the recomposition of the teams, the reorganization of the work process and the weakening of the national policy coordination. It is argued that its review indicates serious risks to the achievements obtained with the strengthening of the Primary Health Care in Brazil. In the current conjuncture of strengthening neoliberal ideology, these changes reinforce the subtraction of rights and the process of deconstruction of the Unified Health System in progress in the Country.
