MAZZEI, Adelita Maria Accácio et al. Suporte social para portador de tuberculose no serviço de saúde e na comunidade. Bol. Pneumol. Sanit. [online]. 2003, vol.11, n.2, pp.41-46. ISSN 0103-460X.

Descriptive study with the aim to identify the types of existing social supports (emotional, instrumental, or informational) offered by the Tuberculosis Control Program (TCP) to the patients undergoing Supervised Treatment (ST). This was carried out at a TCP of the Public Health Department of the City of Ribeir„o Preto, S„o Paulo State. The studyís population consisted of patients enrolled in the ST of the NGA-59 TCP, in July 2002. Information regarding the ST patients were provided by key-informers, such as doctors, nurses and sanitary visitors working directly in the TCP, social workers from the Cityís Health and Social Service Departments, representatives from social support institutions, and TCP coordinators. Also, data was collected through observations done before and after nursing appointments and home visits, application of forms to collect information using patientsí files and TCPís records regarding types of incentives and social supports offered during tuberculosis treatment, as well as by the search for governmental and non- governmental institutions that offer social support to tuberculosis patients. Two types of incentives and benefits were identified: specific benefits for tuberculosis patients (offered by the NGA-59 TCP): basket of essential provisions (monthly), milk - 1 liter (weekly), and the Ana Diederichsen Shelter; and general benefits that were available to tuberculosis patients: financial aid for illnesses, school, and kitchen gas, LOAS ñ social support for the elderly and handicapped, and unemployment insurance.
