The appointment of Agenor Alvares as health minister for Brazil comes amid signs of renewed determination to complete the wide-ranging developments embarked upon by his predecessors. At the inauguration, President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva told the new appointee that he "need not invent new projects, but to continue with the work begun". This hints at the intensity - and turmoil - of the ministry's work over the last year, which featured a previous cabinet reshuffle and a review of recently-approved and pending legislation.
