“…Research indicates that factors associated with Public Health services are more affected by social inequalities than factors associated with Supplementary Health system services. 1,[3][4][5] Use of health services is understood to mean all direct contact, through medical consultations and hospitalizations, and all indirect contact, by means of access to preventive and diagnostic tests. 6 The procedure by which service users enter the SUS system is a positive expression of access to Public Health, the use of which is influenced by factors relating to the individual who seeks these services, such as their health needs profile, values and preferences.…”
