Aumento da prematuridade no Brasil: revisão de estudos de base populacional

Abstract: Data from the national live birth information system do not corroborate these trends. Rather, they show differences between the preterm rates given by this system and the rates measured in the studies included in this review. Because of the important role of preterm birth in relation to infant mortality in Brazil, it is important to identify the cause of these increases and to plan interventions that can diminish their occurrence.

“…In Brazil, an increasing trend of prematurity has been observed, as well as in other countries. [2][3] A review of national population-based studies evaluated the increase in premature births. The rate of preterm birth ranged from 3,4 to 15% in the South and Southeast regions between 1978 and 2004 In the Northeast, studies conducted between 1984 and 1998 showed a rate of 3,8 to 10,2%.…”

[2][3] An important part of prematurity can be considered preventable with adequate assistance to pregnant women during prenatal care.…”
