BAUMGARTEN, Alexandre et al. Experiences of health service-related discrimination: exploratory analysis in two Southern Brazilian State capitalsExperiences of health service-related discrimination: Exploratory analysis in two Southern Brazilian State capitals. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.3, pp.353-362. ISSN 2237-9622.  https://doi.org/10.5123/S1679-49742015000300002.

Objective:

to describe the prevalence of health service-related discrimination, as well as its motivations and associated factors.

Methods:

this is a cross-sectional analysis based on data from two population-based surveys carried out in Porto Alegre-RS with health service users and in Florianópolis-SC with a representative sample of university students, between 2010-2012.

Results:

the prevalence of health service-related discrimination was 13.6% (95%CI: 10.5;17.2) in Porto Alegre and 7.4% (95%CI: 5.8;9.1) in Florianopolis; the main reason for being discriminated against was being of low socioeconomic status; in both state capitals the highest prevalence of discrimination was observed among smokers, self-classified Black people, and individuals aged between 31 and 40.

Conclusion:

the results show a relatively low prevalence of discrimination; the study reinforces the need to investigate discrimination in health services in order to provide adequate care to the population.
