A new study by Brazil’s Federal Institute for Statistics (BIS) found that Brazil’s government-run welfare system is the largest in the world.
Brazil’s Social Welfare Program (PVSP) receives more than $7 million annually from the federal government, and the report states that the system is “the most extensive and effective in terms of its capacity to address social problems.”
The report states the program is “highly efficient” and “complements the state-directed health and social security systems” in terms that are “consistent with social welfare goals.”
According to the report, the system was designed in the 1990s to provide social security to people without adequate resources.
It was supposed to provide health care, including free hospitalization, free dental care, free medical care, and free prescriptions for certain prescription drugs.
The PVSP is meant to provide “benefits and protection for the most vulnerable, including the unemployed and underprivileged,” according to the study.
The report also found that the PVST was “very effective at meeting its stated goals,” as well as “providing social protection for those who are at risk of homelessness.”
While the program was initially set up to support the poor, in 2016, the government made the system “more targeted” and began paying people directly for their welfare needs.
According to The Guardian, the program “has since grown into a major source of public spending for the Brazilian economy, helping the country become one of the top two largest in terms on its GDP per capita.
Brazil has been able to avoid having to spend billions of dollars on welfare benefits in the face of declining tax revenues.”
Brazil is one of just two Latin American countries to have the highest government-funded welfare program, the other being Argentina.
According the report: “The PVSS is also one of a number of public-sector-funded social welfare programs in Latin America, and has been a model for other countries, especially in the Americas, including Argentina.”
Brazil has also been one of only two countries in the region to have a government-sanctioned program in place that is “complementary” to the state’s programs.
According an analysis by The Economist, the PVPSP program “provides social protection to the most marginalized among Brazil’s population, including those who have been the most affected by the economic downturn and social instability in Brazil.”
The study also found “that the program also has a high rate of use by low-income populations, especially those living in rural areas.”
According the Guardian, some Brazilians have questioned the use of the PVE to provide a welfare system, which “seems aimed at reducing poverty and inequality, but has not been proven to reduce homelessness or promote social cohesion.”
Brazil was one of five Latin American nations to be the recipient of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, along with Peru, Colombia, and Venezuela.
It is also a member of the United Nations Development Program, and is part of the World Health Organization.
