This increase may have come about as a result of the increase in Gross Domestic Product by 158% in the last 12 years to more than US$1,45 trillion, which makes Brazil responsible for 2.7% of the world economy and provider of 2.12% of international production, placing it ahead of long-established countries such as Russia and Holland nt-weight:bold;mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>enfermera, profesora de enfermería en el programa de postgraduación en enfermería, de la universidad estadual de maringá, doctora ormal'> Fragment--> yle='font-size:10.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"; mso-fareast-font-family:Calibri;mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; background:yellow;mso-highlight:yellow;mso-ansi-language:PT-BR;mso-fareast-language: EN-US;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA;font-weight:bold;mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'> t>
