1/14 According to @WHO, at the end of May South America has become the new epicentre of #COVID19 pandemic. #Brazil has the highest number of cases (411,821) and deaths (25,598) as of Friday 29 May. See bit.ly/3gweT9X.
@WHO 2/14 In this context, Brazil's #SocialProtection faces a huge challenge: implement design tweaks and expand both vertically & horizontally to fight #COVID19 impact—as highlighted by @LeticiaBarthol3 + others from @ipeaonline. See bit.ly/2ZJLraf.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline 3/14 #CashTransfers are key to #Brazil’s response: (1) #BolsaFamília programme (PBF); (2) the social assistance transfers for poor PwD and elderly (BPC) and (3) new emergency transfer: #AuxilioEmergencial.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline 4/14 In April #BolsaFamília reduced its waiting list through the inclusion of 1.22 million families to reach 14.27 million HH (24% of the people), with additional budget of R$ 3.1 bi. (US$ 617 mil.) (see bit.ly/3gw6WBs).
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline 5/14 A new norm (Portaria 335/2020 from the @MinCidadania: bit.ly/2M1qgZr) waived #BolsaFamília conditionalities and registry update requirements for 120 days. Also, #financing for local implementation was secured. See next tweet.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania 6/14 Setting the context: @MinCidadania uses the Decentralized Management Index (IGD-M) to measure local gov.'s performance in managing #BolsaFamilia, including performance on coverage, updates to Cad.Único & condit. Monitoring. See how on this video: bit.ly/3gzFPWk.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania 7/14 The IGD is also used by the Federal gov. to transfer $ to local govs. to finance programme implementation. As the activities measured by the IGD were suspended, the index was fixed at of Feb/2020 value to ensure that govs. continue to receive $ to respond to #Covid19.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania 8/14 BPC saw 3 major adaptations: i. the Gov. will pay R$600 (approx. US$ 107) for 3 months to applicants in the waiting list; ii. requirement that all BPC beneficiaries needed to register in Cad.Único has been postponed (see bit.ly/3dfstfS); and
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania 9/14 iii. when necessary, medical inspections are scheduled and conducted on-line (bit.ly/2XcnuHf). Also, @MinCidadania authorized remote registries/updates in Cad.Único (on-line or via phone). See Portaria 368/2020: bit.ly/2ZO3VGI.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania 10/14 Finally, the #AuxilioEmergencial: the new prog. provides 3 transfers of R$ 600 pp. (max. 2 in family) and targets 18+ without formal job & low family income. On May 14, the Gov. allowed mothers u-18 to access the benefit. See bit.ly/2TQaxQZ.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania 11/14 There are important links btw. PBF and the #AuxilioEmergencial: as in Law 13.982/2020, PBF benf. are entitled to the new scheme, and will receive R$ 600 (always when it's higher than their regular BF transfer), using the same card: bit.ly/3gw6WBs.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania 12/14 The new #CashTransfer is #GenderSensitive, and single mothers get 2x benefit value. In addition to PBF beneficiaries, can also access the benefit those in Cad. Único (but not elig. to PBF) + new eligible applicants using a mobile app from @Caixa (Brazil's Public Bank).
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania @Caixa 13/14 Around 97M ind. had their social registries and applications assessed by end of April. 50.5 M (1/4 pop.) were considered eligible; 32.8 M had the benefit denied (after database cross-checks); and 13.7 M were asked for more information. See bit.ly/3gzrzfY.
@WHO @LeticiaBarthol3 @ipeaonline @MinCidadania @Caixa 14/14 55,9M ind. received the new benefit (at least 1 pay.) by May 25. Overall R$ 65.5B has been transferred (see bit.ly/3gtFjJk). Despite some talks about extension of the benefit beyond 3 months, there has been no official confirmation.
