Men's sexual health in the Brazilian public health system

Dr Jane Araujo Russo

There’s already a long tradition of special policies aiming at women’s health in the Brazilian public health system. Starting with programs of maternal health and care, women’s health policies have partially incorporated, in the last 15 years, issues regarding sexual health as a result of the feminist movement. Programs directed towards men’s health appeared more recently.
Last year a program of sexual health for men was organized by one of the most important sexologists in Brazil. Of the utmost importance was the recent announcement, made by the Brazilian Health Ministry, regarding the possibility of free distribution through the public health system (SUS) of a drug called Helleva (produced by a Brazilian laboratory) to men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
