Vaccinations

The recommended vaccinations : hepatitis A, hepatitis B, tetanus-polio, typhoid, yellow fever. Please note there is a risk of malaria in the north west of the country.

Ministry of Social Security and Assistance (Previdência Social) : www.mpas.gov.br

Students should get information from each university for example, Aliança Saude at the Universidade do Parana : www.pucpr/alianca/index.htm

All paid employers in Brazil are subjugated to the Brazilian system of social protection (INSS) (National Institute of Social Security). This system allows access to the public healthcare establishments, those that do not always provide a good service. It is advised to register with a private social protection " plano de saude " (around US $ 200 per length) which allows access to the private system which is very good quality.
