Research by triangulation of methods aiming to evaluate the Care Reorientation Plan for Hypertension and Diabetes, in the perspective of health professionals and users from Caxias (MA).

Regarding the users, 64.1% evaluated the care received as good. It was concluded that important initiatives need to be implemented to improve the Plan, such as the expansion of the variety and amount of drugs and intensification of tracking and monitoring.
