VIANA, Ana Luiza d'Ávila; FAUSTO, Márcia Cristina Rodrigues  and  LIMA, Luciana Dias de. Política de saúde e eqüidade. São Paulo Perspec. [online]. 2003, vol.17, n.1, pp.58-68. ISSN 1806-9452.

This article analyses the issue of equity in the area of health, particularly with regard to health care policy. It presents recent information on the allocation of financial resources and the supply and utilization of health care services throughout a selected group of municipalities in Brazil, and concludes that progress has been made in terms of equity since the establishment of SUS, particularly as reflected in the decentralization of health care policy.

Keywords : health care policy; equity and supply; equity and supply; utilization of heath care services.
