Resumen

SACRAMENTO, Daniel Souza et al. Organization of health services for tuberculosis case diagnosis and treatment in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil, 2014. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.2, e2017500.  Epub 27-Jun-2019. ISSN 1679-4974.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5123/s1679-49742019000200007.

Objective:

to describe the organization of health services for tuberculosis case diagnosis and treatment in the city of Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil.

Methods:

this was a descriptive study of 156 new tuberculosis cases diagnosed and residing in Manaus in 2014, characterized according to socioeconomic, demographic, health-disease process aspects, relationship with health services and treatment outcome, by administering individual questionnaires in the 1st and 6st months of treatment.

Results:

some 70% of cases were diagnosed at the tuberculosis reference center; most of the cases were unaware that there was a community health agent in their neighborhood; regarding treatment follow-up, 55.3% had to join an appointment waiting list; only 67.3% of cases were monitored by the same professional throughout entire treatment.

Conclusion:

the findings indicate presence of barriers to case diagnosis and treatment, both in the referral center and also in primary healthcare units.
