Desbravamento, agricultura e doen?a: a doen?a de Chagas no Estado de S?o Paulo
Silva, Luiz Jacintho da;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 1986, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X1986000200002
Abstract: a reconstruction of the emergence, distribution and disappearence of chagas' disease in the state of s?o paulo (brazil) is undertaken by interpretating existing epidemiological data through historical-materialism. classical concepts concerning the distribution of the disease are shown inadequate to explain the epidemiology of chagas'disease in s?o paulo. by incorporating an analitical methodology and concepts used in geographical studies, an understanding of the evolution of the disease is achieved. the process is demonstrated peculiar to central-south brazil in a particular historical period. chagas'disease, inasmuch as parasitosis of national expression, must be seen as having distinct epidemiological patterns occuring in differente historical periods.
Public health challenges and emerging diseases: the case of S?o Paulo
Silva, Luiz Jacintho da;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2001000700023
Abstract: the author discusses the challenges posed by emerging infectious diseases in 100 years of public health in the state of s?o paulo, brazil. with an advanced and organized public health system, s?o paulo responded to the emergence of infectious diseases by creating research institutions and control programs. the late 19th century witnessed the first modern research institution in microbiology, in response to the bubonic plague. a changing economy led to constant changes in ecosystems. the late 20th century presents a wide array of both emerging and rapidly changing infectious diseases. the present situation calls for creative solutions. ecosystem analysis and more agile epidemiological surveillance are seen as the best alternatives.
O conceito de espa?o na epidemiologia das doen?as infecciosas
Silva, Luiz Jacintho da;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 1997, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X1997000400002
Abstract: this article analyzes how space is employed in infectious disease epidemiology, with a brief retrospective of the various definitions of space and its implications. emphasis is given to the theory of natural foci of infectious diseases formulated by pavlovsky and the interactions of epidemiology and geography.the current problem posed by emerging infections is seen as a determinant of the need for further discussion on the concept of space in infectious disease epidemiology.
Guerra biológica, bioterrorismo e saúde pública
Silva, Luiz Jacintho da;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2001000600036
Abstract: biological agents as weapons are not new to mankind. for centuries and into the present, biological warfare has been the subject of much research and speculation, but little action. their limited use has probably been due to fear of unexpected counter-effects and doubts about their efficiency as weapons. recently a new form of terrorism employing infectious agents has emerged slowly and without much fanfare, until the recent events with bacillus anthracis in the united states. smallpox is potentially the most devastating of these agents. less than 25 years after the eradication of smallpox, the public health field is now forced to deal with the possibility of its re-introduction. the author discusses the scenario of smallpox re-introduction into brazil.
Crescimento urbano e doen?a: a esquistossomose no município de S?o Paulo (Brasil)
Silva,Luiz Jacintho da;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1985, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101985000100001
Abstract: the role of the urban development of the city of s. paulo (brazil) is presented, in this study, in the light of the appearance of condition favorable to the establishment of the transmission of schistosomiasis in southeastern brazil which is usually seen as a consequence of migration from the northeast where the disease in endemic. studies of the distribution of schistosomiasis in s. paulo have given an exaggerated importance to migration. the spread of the disease in the municipality of s. paulo (brazil) is an example of a situation where the pattern of urban growth has been more relevant than migration. the occupation of the lowlands from the late 1950's onwards brought about the conditions for the establishment of disease foci. up to then this was not possible for urbanization occurred exclusively in more elevated areas. without a shift in the pattern of urbanization schistosomiasis wouldn't have occurred in the city of s. paulo, despite intense migration.
Considera??es acerca dos fundamentos teóricos da explica??o em epidemiología
Silva,Luiz Jacintho da;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1985, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101985000400010
Abstract: the historical conditions surrounding the emergence, by the mid-19th century, of epidemiology as a scientific discipline, were analysed. special consideration is given to the influence of the political milieu of victorian england in the definition of the theoretical basis of epidemiology. the english sanitary movement is seen as a response of the emerging bourgeoise to problems created by industrialization and urbanization. as a consequence, epidemiology was strongly influenced by stuart mill's system of logic. during the latter part of the 19th century, bacteriology brought important transformations to epidemiology. however, its theoretical foundations suffered almost no change. possibly the new challenges created by -the expanding colonial empires were the driving force in the evolution of epidemiology. as a science, it could not escape from the influence of social and political forces, it has only been recently, mainly in latin america, that a search for alternatives to the dominating theoretical structure of epidemiology has taken place. the historical-materialist approach has given way to what is sometimes refered to as "social epidemiology". epidemiology should be regarded as a science in which different theoretical approaches may coexist, as in history, sociology or physics.
Da vacina à aspirina: considera??es acerca das a??es coletivas em saúde pública
Silva, Luiz Jacintho da;
Saúde e Sociedade , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-12901996000200002
Abstract: this article is a discussion of the conceptual differences between individual and collective actions in public health. this difference must not be understood as identical to the artificial difference between preventive and curative measures. it is understood as belonging to the past.the incorporation of the medical and hospital complex by the state and municipal health departments is analyzed and deemed as fundamental for the implementation of the necessary public health measures. it is impossible to separate collective and individual measures for they are both seen as an integral part of each and every public health program.the evolution of morbidity and mortality witnessed in brazil in the last decades demands an adaptation of public health measures, with more emphasis on individual health measures and on collective measures outside the usual limits of public health.
