MORAIS, Maria Helena Franco et al. Evaluation of visceral leishmaniasis control activities in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, 2006-2011. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.3, pp.485-496. ISSN 1679-4974.

OBJECTIVE: to evaluate visceral leishmaniasis (VL) control activities in Belo Horizonte-MG, Brazil. METHODS: this was a descriptive study to evaluate VL control compliance with the objectives of the Brazilian Health Ministry's VL Control Program; data were collected from the Belo Horizonte Zoonosis Control and Notifiable Disease Information Systems. RESULTS: between 2007-2011 the VL reservoir control strategy was adjusted to increase coverage of prioritized areas (23.4%) and coverage of the examined canine population (43.3%); more than 85.0% of seropositive dogs were put down; 47.8% reduction in canine seroprevalence. Between 2008-2011, human case incidence decreased from 7.2 to 3.9/100,000 inhabitants. There was no expansion of coverage in areas prioritized for vector control. CONCLUSION: program objectives were achieved, although adjustments differed between control strategies. However, the intervention's complexity indicates the need to review the proposed measures.
