In principle, a country's heath services should be designed to match the health needs of the population. How true is this of Brazil? This programme takes an inside look at health services in Rio d...e Janeiro, exploring the way the system works and conditions in the clinics, hospitals and dispensaries. Neither patients, doctors or government officials, it would appear, are satisfied with the present arrangements, so why are things as they are?
