BAUMGARTEN, Alexandre et al. Experiences of health service-related discrimination: exploratory analysis in two Southern Brazilian State capitals. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.3, pp.353-362. ISSN 1679-4974.

OBJECTIVE: to describe the prevalence of health service-related discrimination, as well as its motivations and associatedfactors. METHODS: this is a cross-sectional analysis based on data from two population-based surveys carried out in Porto Alegre-RS with health service users and in Florianópolis-SC with a representative sample of university students, between 2010-2012. RESULTS: the prevalence of discrimination related to the health services was 13.6% (CI95%: 10.5-17.2) in Porto Alegre and 7.4% (CI95%: 5.8-9.1) in Florianopolis; the main reason for being discriminated against was to be of low socioeconomic position; in both state capitals, the highest prevalence of discrimination was observed among smokers, self-classified blacks, and individuals between 31 and 40 years of age. CONCLUSION: the results show a relatively low prevalence of discrimination; the study reinforces the need to investigate discrimination in health services in order to provide adequate care to the population.
