Description

O Plano visa preparar o Brasil para enfrentar e deter, nos próximos dez anos, as doenças crônicas não transmissíveis (DCNT), entre as quais: acidente vascular cerebral, infarto, hipertensão arterial, câncer, diabetes e doenças respiratórias crônicas. No país, essas doenças constituem o problema de saúde de maior magnitude e correspondem a cerca de 70% das causas de mortes, atingindo fortemente camadas pobres da população e grupos mais vulneráveis, como a população de baixa escolaridade e renda. Na última década, observou-se uma redução de aproximadamente 20% nas taxas de mortalidade pelas DCNT, o que pode ser atribuído à expansão da atenção primária, melhoria da assistência e redução do consumo do tabaco desde os anos 1990, mostrando importante avanço na saúde dos brasileiros.

The Plan aims to prepare Brazil to address chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in the next 10 years, including: stroke, heart attack, hypertension, cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases. In the country, these diseases constitute the health problem of great magnitude and correspond to about 70% of the causes of deaths, largely affecting the poor population and vulnerable groups such as people with low education and income. In the last decade, there was a reduction of approximately 20% in mortality rates for NCDs, which may be attributed to the expansion of primary care, the improvement of care and the reduction tobacco use since the 1990s, showing important advances in the health of Brazilians.
