SANTOS, Ellen Cristina Barbosa dos et al. HEALTH JUDICIALIZATION: ACCESS TO TREATMENT FOR USERS WITH DIABETES MELLITUS. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.1, e0800016.  Epub 22-Mar-2018. ISSN 0104-0707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0104-070720180000800016.

Objective:

to analyze the procedural elements and individual lawsuits filed by users with diabetes mellitus for the supply of drugs, supplies or materials to treat the disease.

Method:

an exploratory documentary type quantitative study, where 636 lawsuits were analyzed in a region of São Paulo State, from 2004 to 2013.

Results:

it was found that the number of cases increased from three in 2004 to 111 in 2012. In 2013 administrative measures were instituted with the aim of reducing the number of cases. In 457 (71.9%) cases the lawsuits were filed through prescription of private medical practices. Most of the lawsuits were requests for medicine that were not included on the free funding lists supplied by the Unified Health System.

Conclusion:

health judicialization favors reflection on health rights and access to information on the restructuring of health services for users with diabetes mellitus.
