Alteration in the regulations for investment of foreign capital in the Brazilian health sector
The law in question has altered Law 8.080, dated September 19, 1990, which prohibited the direct or indirect investment of foreign capital in the healthcare sector, unless such was made by means of donations from international organizations connected to the United Nations Organization, or entities focused on technical cooperation, or finance and loans.
The new law is allowing for foreign companies or capital to participate, be it directly or indirectly, in legal entities created for the establishment, operation or development of specialized or general hospitals, including charitable, outpatient, general or specialized clinics, as well as in family planning research or activities.
Felsberg Advogados is available to provide any additional clarification that may be necessary on this development.
