LOMBARDI, Clovis. The care of the venereal patient in health centers of the Health Department of the State of S. Paulo (Brazil). Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1978, vol.12, n.1, pp. 16-22. ISSN 1518-8787. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101978000100002.
The author describes the situation of venereal patients care in 340 Health Centers of the State of S. Paulo (Brazil) in 1975, through a questionnaire answered by those technically responsible (doctors) for the Health Centers. The questionnaire also included personal opinions, comments and suggestions. Syphilis and gonorrhoeae are specifically studied in relation to incidence, laboratory diagnosis, therapeutic schemes, health education, as well as the relationship between the Health Center and other medical care agencies.
