Temporal trend of tuberculosis in Brazil.
The objective was to analyze the temporal trend of tuberculosis incidence rates in Brazilian states and regions to identify patterns and inequalities. We carried out an ecological study of incidence rates per 100,000 inhabitants aged between 20 and 59 years with tuberculosis in Brazil and in their respective states from 2001 to 2017 according to annual percentage change and joinpoint regression. A significant decrease of -15.1% in the annual variation (95%CI: -27.2; -1.0) was observed in Roraima between the years 2003-2007. In the Central Region, Goiás registered an annual average variation of -2.5% per year (95%CI:...

Forecasting the rate of cumulative cases of COVID-19 infection in Northeast Brazil: a Boltzmann function-based modeling study.
ute;jo KCGM Abstract The COVID-19 death rate in Northeast Brazil is much higher when compared to the national average, demanding a study into the prognosis of the region for planning control measures and preventing the collapse of the health care system. We estimated the potential total cumulative cases of COVID-19 in the region for the next three months. Our study included all confirmed cases, from March 8 until April 28, 2020, collected from the official website that reports the situation of COVID-19 infections in Brazil. The Boltzmann function was applied to a data simulation for each set of data regarding diff...

Life expectancy with negative physical oral health impact on quality of life in older adults.
Abstract Oral impairments can affect overall health and life expectancy in older adults. Our study evaluates the life expectancy with negative physical oral health impact on quality of life (POHIQoL) among older adults. Life expectancy with negative POHIQoL was estimated by the Sullivan method, using the prevalence of POHIQoL - obtained in the Health, Well-being and Ageing (SABE Study); and official mortality data for adults aged 60 years or older living in São Paulo, Brazil. Between 2000 and 2010, negative POHIQoL increased from 23.4% (95%CI: 20.2-26.9) to 30.4% (95%CI: 27.0-34.3) among older adults; total...

Emerging arboviruses (dengue, chikungunya, and Zika) in Southeastern Mexico: influence of socio-environmental determinants on knowledge and practices.
This study consists of the application of a community prevention project. Different surveys and methodological approaches were used. Associations between socio-environmental determinants and knowledge and practices for arboviruses transmission control were estimated by odds ratio. Logistic regression and qualitative techniques were used. Although around 75% of households had an adequate knowledge about arboviruses' origin and transmission, only 30% of them adopted adequate practices. Domestic risk practices were associated with serious deficiencies in water and sanitation services. Furthermore, a perception of greater risk...

The COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil: analysis of supply and demand of hospital and ICU beds and mechanical ventilators under different scenarios.
This study aims to analyze the pressure on the Brazilian health system from the additional demand created by COVID-19. The authors performed a series of simulations to estimate the demand for hospital beds (health micro-regions) as well as to ICU beds, and mechanical ventilators (health macro-regions) under different scenarios of intensity (infection rates equivalent to 0.01, 0.1, and 1 case por 100 inhabitants) and time horizons (1, 3, and 6 months). The results reveal a critical situation in the system for meeting this potential demand, with numerous health micro-regions and macro-regions operating beyond their capacity,...

Abstract This Essay reflects on some current approaches to the promotion of physical activity, proposing greater visibility for leisure-time physical activities and inequalities in access to them. The current scenario of increasing inequalities and the importance of confronting them, highlighting the pertinence of public policies, is presented and discussed in light of two theories, the Inverse Equity Hypothesis and the Inverse Care Law. The Inverse Equity Hypothesis seeks to understand how inequalities tend to be established in health indicators, based on an expected increase in inequalities when health innovatio...

Abstract Men are the main group affected by HIV infection in Brazil, with an upward trend in the last 10 years. According to official data, heterosexual men represent 49% of cases, followed by homosexuals with 38% and bisexuals with 9.1%. Heterosexual men have been subsumed in the category "overall population" and have failed to receive specific attention in preventive policies or activities. The article proposes to analyze the circumstances and strategies by which heterosexual men learn of their HIV diagnosis. The study thus seeks to understand the paths and social actors involved in their HIV/AIDS diag...

Rapid immunochromatographic tests for the diagnosis of dengue: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
SAD Abstract Dengue is an important arthropod-borne viral disease in terms of morbidity, mortality, economic impact and challenges in vector control. Benchmarks are expensive, time consuming and require trained personnel. Preventing dengue complications with rapid diagnosis has been based on the testing of easy-to-perform optimized immunochromatographic methods (ICT). This is a systematic meta-analysis review of the diagnostic accuracy of IgA, NS1, IgM and/or IgG ICT studies in suspected cases of acute or convalescent dengue, using a combination of RT-PCR, ELISA NS1, IgM IgG or viral isolation as a reference stand...

Challenges and opportunities for telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic: ideas on spaces and initiatives in the Brazilian context.
Abstract COVID-19 has created enormous challenges for health systems worldwide, with the rapidly growing number of deaths and critical patients with pneumonia requiring ventilatory support. Alternative methods to control the spread of the disease such as social isolation, extreme quarantine measures, and contact tracing have been used around the world. However, these measures may not be totally effective to fight COVID-19, in step with the necessary national preparations to meet the new patient care demands. A wide range of digital technologies can be used to enhance these public health strategies, and the pandemi...

We present the SEIR-Net model, for a network of social group interactions, as a development of the classic mathematical model of SEIR epidemics (Susceptible-Exposed-Infected (symptomatic and asymptomatic)-Removed). In the SEIR-Net model, we can simulate social contacts between groups divided by age groups and analyze different strategies of social distancing. In the vertical distancing policy, only older people are distanced, whereas in the horizontal distancing policy all age groups adhere to social distancing. These two scenarios are compared to a control scenario in which no intervention is made to distance people. The ...
