This project aims to evaluate the impact of the current economic crisis in the Brazilian Health System, especially in health human resources and in the offer of health services to vulnerable population. To archive that, we will analyze secondary data, collect primary quantitative and qualitative data. The study will be conducted in the states of São Paulo and Maranhão, chosen for their disparities in economic reality, health system organization, availability of medical workforce and in the health status of the population. We expect, with the result of this study, to support policy making and adoption of measures to attenuate eventual impacts of the economic crisis in Brazil's health. (AU)
