In Brazil

Brazil needs necessary numbers of incidence and prevalence of the HAS, mainly in the aged population. The majority of the data is of American origin. With the significant increase of the geriatrical population, it is evidenced, the importance of studies on the prevalence of the HAS in aged, for the elaboration of a program of prevention and orientation, preventing the comprometimento of the health of this population (C0NVERSO; LEOCARDIO, 2005). 2.OBJETIVO Fazer a bibliographical survey on the Pharmaceutical Assistance for hipertensos aged patients, mainly the taken care of ones for the Basic Units of Health?
