Rio de Janeiro was one of ciadades study participants. Research examined socioeconomic indicators from 1949 and analyzed the mortality DataSUS between the years 1980 and 2008

A survey of physicians Fluminense Federal University pointed out that improvements in socioeconomic conditions of the population reduced the death rate from cardiovascular disease, especially in cases of cerebrovascular accident (CVA), in at least three states of Brazil: Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Rio Grande do Sul

The research, done by doctors Port Gabriel Soares, Julia Dias Brum, Gláucia Maria Oliveira, Carlos Henrique Klein and Nelson Albuquerque, worked socioeconomic indicators from 1949 and analyzed the mortality DataSUS between the years 1980 and 2008.

A medical professor at UFRJ and president of the Society of Cardiology of the State of Rio de Janeiro (SOCERJ) Gláucia Maria Oliveira, said studies have shown that there is a lag of 30 years between investments of resources in reducing child mortality, increased the years of schooling of the population and improving the GDP, that has on average the effect of reducing cardiovascular mortality.

"There was a very close relationship between the decrease in mortality with improved socioeconomic levels. The fall started from 1980 and then intensified in 2000, but the benefit comes from the investment that was made back there. There is a discrepancy for the fall mortality not only by ischemic heart disease, and by cerebrovascular diseases as diseases of the circulatory system, "she said.

The influence of the investment, according Gláucia will vary among the states that showed search results. "In São Paulo, such as socioeconomic status have better, you see the benefit in one year if the investment. In Rio de Janeiro, which has a lower socioeconomic status, the difference to have the benefit will vary around 20 to 30 years. There was a greater improvement in socioeconomic status from the years 2000 and hopefully in the future we will have a greater decrease in mortality, "he explained.

The survey also revealed that the benefits reach all tracks of society, because there are investments in factors such as falling infant mortality, increase in years of schooling and GDP growth. "When you invest in GDP is invested for everyone. Such is it the advantage. Therefore that mortality falls much and has benefits for all classes. In Rio de Janeiro if investing $ 100 in the economy, has a percentage drop of 1.5 to 2 in ischemic heart disease, but diseases of the circulatory fall to 6%, "he added.

The president of the Brazilian Society of Cardiology (SBC), Jadelson Andrade, the search result is very important because cardiovascular diseases are still the leading cause of death in Brazil, accounting for more than 300,000 deaths annually.

The research was published in the journal of the Brazilian Society of Cardiology Brazilian Archives of Cardiology.
