RAMOS, Reinaldo and WITT, Aracy. The course on health planning of Public Health School of University of S. Paulo: evaluation test. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1974, vol.8, n.2, pp.155-162. ISSN 1518-8787. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101974000200002.
After describing the organization and contents of the course on health planning, of Public Health School of U.S.P., the Authors relate the results obtained through a research with the professionals prepared in such courses from 1968 to 1972. In spite of some deficiencies pointed out in the course, the opinion of almost all of the interviewers was that the knowledges and techniques given in the course confere them large capacity for carrying out planning activities. The major difficulties found are related to the administration of the health services, to personnel and material shortage and to the lack of central, regional and local support. Some suggestions are made in order to eliminate or reduce such difficulties.
