DAMASCENO, Simone Soares et al. Children's Health in Brazil: orienting basic network to Primary Health Care. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.9, pp.2961-2973. ISSN 1413-8123.

This is an integrative literature review that analyzed the scientific knowledge produced on the orientation of Brazilian basic care services to primary health care focusing on child health. Searches were carried out in SciELO, Lilacs and Medline databases using descriptors “primary health care”, “family health program”, “child health” and “evaluation of health services”. Studies published in Portuguese, English and Spanish between 2000 and 2013 were selected. A total of 32 studies were chosen and characterized in relation to the features of primary health care, region of the country, type of study and authors' practice area. A thematic review of studies was conducted and resulted in two categories: child care in the context of Brazilian primary health care and primary health care features: limitations to child care. It can be understood that Brazilian primary health care services are heterogeneous regarding the presence and scope of essential child care characteristics. There is a lack of structural and process changes in the services to substantially plan child care actions in basic care.

Palavras-chave : Primary Health Care; Child health; Evaluation of health services.
