Abstract

The Venezuelan migration is a current issue that has intensified in Roraima, Brazil, overburdening public health services. The proposal of this estudy was to analyze the impact of migration in healthcare in a reference hospital of Roraima, Brazil. It was a qualitative research comprised comprised of twenty semistructured interviews with professionals who work at the hospital. We noticed there was no change in the number of professionals, in the supply of input, in planning, and in infrastructure improvements to adapt to this new reality. Many migrants live in social vulnerability situation, and cultural and behavioral differences hinder the provision of healthcare. Therefore, migration negatively impacts healthcare, but it only intensifies chronic issues that already exist in that hospital.
