FIGUEIRO, Ana Cláudia et al. Intervention logic analysis of the National Dengue Fever Control Program. Rev. Bras. Saude Mater. Infant. [online]. 2010, vol.10, suppl.1, pp.s93-s106. ISSN 1519-3829.

OBJECTIVES: to evaluate the logical coherence of the Brazilian National Dengue Fever Control Program (PNCD) with regard to its objectives and the measures taken to achieve results. METHODS: an evaluative study, an intervention logic analysis, using a review of documentation from three information sources on the PNCD: the report produced by a panel of specialists meeting at an international seminar to evaluate the program; technical documents and the opinions of specialists; and scientific studies. The analysis of the program was compared to the Pan-American Health Organization model for the prevention and control of dengue fever -the Integrated Management Strategy-Dengue Fever. RESULTS: convergence was found between the strategies with regard to presuppositions, objectives, overarching goals and components, and the content of interventions. PNCD implementation was found to be weak in terms of integration at municipal level, especially in its management structure, as well as in the components analyzed, with a greater emphasis on the vector control component. CONCLUSIONS: the model lacks coherence and there is a need to update it at different PNCD management levels, in view of the fact that little progress has been made in meeting the overall and specific objectives of the components.
