ABSTRACT A pesquisa, desenvolvida dentro dos Estudos de Linha de Base do Proesf analisou o desempenho do Programa Saúde da Família (PSF) em 41 municípios dos Estados de Alagoas, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, Rio Grande do Sul e Santa Catarina. Utilizou delineamento transversal, com grupo de comparação externo (atenção básica tradicional). Entrevistou 41 presidentes de Conselhos Municipais de Saúde, 29 secretários municipais de Saúde e 32 coordenadores de Atenção Básica. Foram caracterizados a estrutura e o processo de trabalho em 234 Unidades Básicas de Saúde (UBS), incluindo 4.749 trabalhadores de saúde; 4.079 crianças; 3.945 mulheres; 4.060 adultos e 4.006 idosos. O controle de qualidade alcançou 6% dos domicílios amostrados. A cobertura do PSF de 1999 a 2004 cresceu mais no Nordeste do que no Sul. Menos da metade dos trabalhadores ingressaram por concurso público e o trabalho precário foi maior no PSF do que em UBS tradicionais. Os achados sugerem um desempenho da Atenção Básica à Saúde (ABS) ainda distante das prescrições do SUS. Menos da metade da demanda potencial utilizou a UBS de sua área de abrangência. A oferta de ações de saúde, a sua utilização e o contato por ações programáticas foram mais adequados no PSF.

    ABSTRACT: Health policies that spawned the design of the health systems in Brazil were undertaken with strong civil society participation. This is the case of the Family Health Strategy, based on the basic principles of the Brazilian Single Health System (SUS): universality, equity and integration, in the context of decentralization and social control of health administration. This review focuses on the SUS milestones and its institutional mission, delving into what is meant by family health and describing how family medicine and community and family health have been a strategy to provide primary health care for all.

    ABSTRACT: 29(2):294-302, fev, 2013 Cobertura vacinal do esquema básico para o primeiro ano de vida nas capitais do Nordeste brasileiro Coverage of the basic immunization schedule in the fi rst year of life in State capitals in Northeast Brazil Cobertura de vacunación de esquema básico durante el primer año de vida en las capitales del nordeste brasileño Abstract Vaccination coverage in the so-called "develop-ing countries" is still lower than expected. Such coverage is an important indicator of population health and the quality of care provided by the health care system. The current study describes the results of a household survey to estimate cov-erage of the basic immunization schedule in the first year of life in State capitals in Northeast Bra-zil, for the 2005 birth cohort. The methodology used was that recommended by the Pan Ameri-can Health Organization for surveys on vaccina-tion coverage. According to the data, vaccination coverage fell short of the goals set by the National Immunization Program for this age group, at high risk of acquiring vaccine-preventable dis-eases. The lowest coverage rates were found at the two extremes of socioeconomic strata. Assessment of vaccination coverage indicates whether the in-fant population is immunized and helps identify weak points in vaccination activities.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: describe hospital admissions for ambulatory sensitive conditions (ACS) in the São José do Rio Preto health region, São Paulo State, Brazil. Methods. a descriptive study using data from the Unified Health System’s Hospital Admissions Information System, 2008-2010. Results: the ACS coefficient for this health region was around 13.0/1000 inhabitants each year. The five most common diagnoses were heart failure, angina, urinary tract infections, infectious gastroenteritis and cerebrovascular diseases. Circulatory system diseases were the primary diagnosis recorded in 41.5% of these admissions. ACS expenditure was R$ 30,370,691.08, corresponding to 17% of the total costs of hospital admissions in this health region. Conclusion: the occurrence potentially preventable ACS indicates the need for further investigations about possible factors that may be interfering with the organization and outcomes of primary care in the region studied.
