Announcing Upcoming Supplement on the Brazilian National Program for Improving Access and Quality of Primary Care (PMAQ)
The Brazilian National Program for Improving Access and Quality of Primary Care (PMAQ) is one of the world’s largest initiatives intended to stimulate access to and quality of primary care services, encompassing over 30,000 health teams in nearly every Brazilian municipality. Currently in its third year, the program has multiple components including an innovative pay for performance mechanism. The program is growing rapidly and evolving new forms of performance assessment; financial and non-financial incentives; and partnerships between municipalities, states, and the federal government.
