Brazil issues warning over strike-hit medtech supplies

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Brazilian medtech importers association Abimed has warned of the risks to the running of the healthcare system of a strike by customs personnel, which is said to have paralysed the leading Porto do Santos seaport and Guarulhos airport, in Sao Paulo. "The true effect [on medtech imports specifically] of the situation cannot be quantified, but is already worrying the health sector," Abimed vice-president Abrao Melnik said on April 2. All importers operate with a reserve of stock of up to a few weeks, but this will need to be replaced fairly rapidly, he explained.
