OLIVEIRA, Suenny Fonseca de  and  ALBUQUERQUE, Francisco José Batista de. Family health program: an analysis from the beliefs of their service providers. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.2, pp.237-246. ISSN 0102-7182.

This study intended to qualitatively evaluate the Family Health Program (FHP) from the beliefs of Family Health Team (FHT) professionals. It was selected a sample of five Family Health Units (FHU), in which 30 professionals were interviewed. The analysis of the interviews' content showed that the professionals of FHT negatively evaluate the FHP in relation to working conditions provided by managers, the deficient reference and cross-reference systems, the absence and/or lack of training, the overload of work and a lack of understanding about the project. The evaluation of the FHU corroborated the speech of the FHT professionals about the precarious working conditions of the FHP sites. Despite all the criticism, the professionals positively evaluate the link established with the population and they express satisfaction with an educative, of prevention and promotion of health work which is ruled by ideals of social justice.

Keywords : Evaluation of Program; FHP; basic attention; health professionals.
