Brazil was one of the first Latin American countries to establish universal health coverage (UHC) as a fundamental right, based on the principles that health care is a duty of the state and should be free at the point of use. The reform in the late 1980s created the Unified Health System (Sistema Único de Saúde, or SUS) and was based on the principle that health care should be free at the point of use to all Brazilian citizens.
