OBJECTIVES: We aimed to compare the sociodemographic, clinical and epidemiological characteristics of individuals under the age of 15, reported to have leprosy, and who lived in priority and non-priority cities, as well as to compare the spatial distribution of these reported cases in such cities. This is a cross-sectional study of new leprosy cases in individuals under the age of 15 (n=429) registered in the Information System for Notifiable Diseases from the State of Mato Grosso, Brazil, between 2011 and 2013...

INTRODUCTION: Health Information Systems are potential instruments to analyze health situation; however, the non-compulsory filling of a single common field makes it difficult to link systems' data. This study aimed to describe and evaluate the adequacy of the strategies used to perform data linkage between databases from the Brazilian Public Health System (SUS) as to records for breast cancer control. METHODS: The Breast Cancer Control Information Systems (SISMAMA), the Outpatient Information System (SIA, through Individualized Outpatient Service Production - BPA-I - and High-Complexity Outpatient Procedures Authorization Forms - APAC), the Hospital Information System (SIH), and the Mortality Information System (SIM) were linked probabilistically...

INTRODUCTION: High particulate matter (PM10) concentrations are associated with increased incidence of respiratory symptoms and decreased lung function. This study evaluates the air pollution effects in children's and adolescents' lung function using peak expiratory flow (PEF) measurements over a given period, in an area exposed to industrial emissions. METHODOLOGY: This was a panel study. The effects of air pollution on respiratory symptoms and PEF were investigated in 117 children and adolescents from three public schools in areas of exposure to air pollution from a mining company in a Brazilian medium-sized city, from 2008 to 2009...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the spatial risk of AIDS mortality in census tracts in a large Brazilian city. METHOD: We studied three retrospective cohorts of individuals with AIDS, who were residents in the city of Campinas, in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. The occurrence of death was analyzed from 1980 to 1990 (cohort 1), 1996 to 2000 (cohort 2), and from 2001 to 2005 (cohort 3). We adjusted a Bayesian semi-parametric model, using the Integrated Nested Laplace Approximation (INLA) method, which allowed for the mapping of mortality risk for the three cohorts...
