This right was established in art. 6, of the Constitution of the Federative Republic of Brazil in 1988 - CRFB/88 - and represents a fundamental social right of the Brazilian people and Rondonia state. Thus, in 1990, the effective creation of the Unified Health System - SUS - was removed from legislation, and the Brazilian government began providing health in a decentralized manner with three federal entities (federal, state and municipalities).
