Abstract

This paper describes a model of integrated reproductive health care services for women at the primary health core level, put into practice at the Perola Byington Hospital, Sao Paulo, Brazil, from 1991 to 1998. Some 2,000 women from poor social strata, whose health condition was poor, were being seen every day in the lost two years of the programme, including new consultations and women with a previous attendance returning. Women were attended first by nurse-assistants, who hod been trained to screen for the most frequent gynaecological problems, and then a physician. Because doctors spent less time with each patient, four times as many women could be seen. Programmes were set up for the diagnosis and treatment of gynaecological cancers, STDs, HIV/AIDS, hypertension and other degenerative disorders such as diabetes. Screening and treatment programmes for cervical and breast cancer achieved significant improvements in the stage at which a diagnosis was mode, allowing more lives to be saved. This model also succeeded in decreasing the costs for these health services per woman seen.
