The Brazilian government has supported preventive and health promotion services since 1988. In 1994, the government implemented the Family Health Program (Pro- grama de Saude da Fam?lia [PSF]) using professional health teams to provide primary care. Fam- ily medicine residency programs have been encouraged and funded. Jobs are available with attractive remuneration. However, there is lack of interest in family medicine and an inadequate supply of family physicians.
