AZEVEDO, Antonio Carlos de et al. Periferal integration of health care: experience in Amazon Region, Brazil. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1973, vol.7, n.4, pp.289-403. ISSN 1518-8787. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101973000400009.
Five years of experience with comprehensive health care, based in periferal integration of services in a 10000 inhabitants community in Amazon Region, Brazil is presented. The need for integration of health care is stressed with some references in literature. The periferal integration of health services through a multiprofessional group practice as a lesser alternative when complete central integration, is unattainable.
