Department of Health presented a preliminary report on the structural conditions and human resources available to combat dengue in Paraná

A preliminary report on the structural conditions and human resources available to combat dengue in Paraná was presented this week. The survey conducted by the State Health Department in 399 municipalities of Paraná, between the months of June and August, was presented to the Inter-Sectoral Steering Committee for the Control of Dengue during the 16th meeting of the group in Curitiba.

The document highlights the concern for municipalities considered at risk of epidemics, with infestation rates (IIP) up 1%. According to the latest survey of the Secretariat, 100 municipalities are at risk of epidemics, of which 18 are on alert, with infestation rate above 4%.

Another fact pointed out by the report concerns the working conditions of staff. In 2012, 72% of municipalities with employment keeps teams considered stable. To the Superintendent of Health Surveillance, Sezifredo Peace, it is essential for the continuity of actions to combat dengue throughout the year. This was possible thanks to the transfer of funds from the State Government, in the order of R $ 2.7 million in 2011, and own resources of municipalities to hire professionals via public tender, said.

In 2011, most of the agents were hired on a temporary or outsourced, which increased the turnover of professionals. Thus, the training of staff was also impaired because we held the course and months after the entire staff was replaced, explained the head of Environmental Monitoring, Ivana Belmonte.

The weakness in employment also allowed layoffs critical periods like summer. Because of the fiscal responsibility law, some mayors resigned dengue teams to contain costs with the municipal payroll. Just at the time when action should be intensified, the work was completely paralyzed, emphasized Sezifredo Peace

The living situation of dengue also released a report comparing the data between the periods of the disease epidemiological year 2010/2011 and 2011/2012. Since 2011, the Paraná started using a new methodology to analyze chronological cases of dengue. The new schedule takes into account the epidemiological curve of the disease, which usually has its peak during the summer. Thus, the data begin to be analyzed in August and are closed in July of the following year.

Between 2011/2012 were registered 2400 cases of dengue in the state, 92% less than the same period in 2010/2011, when 28,511 cases were confirmed. The reduction was also observed in the number of severe cases fell from 233 to 22. Regarding deaths fall was 93% (15 deaths in 2010/2011 and one in 2011/2012).

According to the coordinator of the dengue situation room, Ronaldo Trevisan, the period of 2012/2013 has begun with nine confirmed cases and seven native and two imported. From early August until now, no death was reported.
