The present study integrates an evaluative analysis of the Expansion and Consolidation Program of Family Health and consists of a study of qualitative approach, developed in one large municipal in Brazil. In this article we attempt to present a description of the process of qualitative evaluation of the integrality regarding the management of health care in a municipal district. We used semi-structured interviews with 10 representatives of the municipal administration, structured interviews with the representative of Municipal Council of Health, and a solemnity-applied questionnaire to the Municipal Secretary of Health as instruments. We verified that the Program amplified access, liberating a repressed demand. However, this implies an increase of expenses and of the challenge of enlarging the communication and resolvability of the services.
