MALTA, Deborah Carvalho et al. Monitoring the goals of the plans for coping with Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases: results of the National Health Survey, Brazil, 2013 and 2019. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2022, vol.31, n.esp1, e2021364.  Epub June 22, 2022. ISSN 1679-4974.


To monitor the achievement of the action plans for the prevention and control of Non-Communicable Diseases agreed-upon targets.


Cross-sectional study, with data from the 2013 and 2019 National Health Survey. The following targets, up to 2025, were evaluated: physical inactivity, alcohol consumption, salt/sodium, tobacco use, high blood pressure, diabetes, overweight, obesity, cervical cytology testing, and drug therapy and counseling. To check whether the targets were achieved, the prevalence ratio was calculated (PR).


60,202 individuals were assessed in 2013, and 88,531 in 2019. The targets for physical inactivity (PR = 0.88; 95%CI 0.86;0.90) and cervical cytology coverage (79.4%; 95%CI 78.3;80.3) were achieved. Tobacco use was reduced, albeit below the target. The prevalence of hypertension, diabetes, overweight, obesity and alcohol consumption increased, and the targets will not be attained.


Two indicators reached the agreed targets, however it is necessary to advance in actions and policies to meet the others.
