REIS, Ana Cristina; SANTOS, Elizabeth Moreira dos  y  CRUZ, Marly Marques da. Mortality for aids in Brazil: An exploratory study of its temporal evolution. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2007, vol.16, n.3, pp.195-205. ISSN 1679-4974.

This descriptive and exploratory study was based on the analysis of AIDS standardized mortality rates in Brazil along the period of 1982 to 2002. The analysis of the AIDS mortality profile considered the following variables of the Mortality Information System: sex; age; marital status; educational level; and occupation. The results evidenced the decrease of mortality rate after 1996 when public health services introduced antiretroviral treatment, although there was an important deceleration of this decrease in the last three years. The reduction of the mortality rate is greater in the male sex than in the female one; and young adults and lower-class people are still the most affected ones. It can be inferred that the deceleration of the decrease of AIDS mortality rate in the country suggests the need of increasing the early diagnosis access and assistance, the improvement in the quality of the care for those who live with HIV/AIDS, and the adjustment of the epidemiological surveillance and monitoring of AIDS deaths to more effectively control of the epidemic.
