Hospitalizations of children with sickle cell disease in the Brazilian Unified Health System in the state of Minas Gerais

Abstract: A high demand for hospital care in children with sickle cell disease was evident. The number of hospitalizations increased from 1999 to 2012, suggesting that the disease has become more "visible." Knowledge of the characteristics of these admissions can help in the planning of care for these children in the SUS.

“…SCD is a public health problem in Brazil, due to the large number of affected individuals. 15,16 Despite the association between SCD and African ancestry, extensive admixture has been shown in patients with SCD. 17 Consequently, more studies about the genetic profiles of these patients are necessary to understand the influence of the genetic diversity of this population on the likelihood of identifying an HLA-matched donor and on the outcomes of HSCT.…”

“…Outro estudo (11) , também, apontou a necessidade de capacitar a equipe multiprofissional e incluir a informação da doença nas fichas do sistema da atenção primária, ampliando e qualificando as portas de entrada dos serviços para esse atendimento. Além de incluir a doença nos parâmetros da regulação e classificação de risco, instituindo, no âmbito do SUS, a linha de cuidado integral à pessoa com DF (11) . Salienta-se, ainda, a necessidade de priorizar a terapêutica da prevenção e diagnóstico precoce de complicações, ações que podem ajudar na redução do número de hospitalizações e na diminuição das possíveis sequelas da doença.…”
