After prenatal care, 80% of men started to provide more health services


According to research published today by the Ministry of Health (8), eight out of ten men became more cautious about their own health in prenatal consultations. The study shows that 72.25% of parents or carers participated in the prenatal consultation portfolio with their partners. Of this, 80.71% said that they were motivated to take better care of their health.

"Data show that paternity is the main gateway of a person in a health institution so that he can take care of himself," the ministry said.

In this third phase of the study on human health, paternity and care, 37,322 interviews with parents or carers took over their father's personality and followed before birth, childbirth and after the birth of children born in the Single Health System (SUS) in the year 2015.

According to the report, the aim of the study is to obtain information on the health access of men, admission and care in public health services and to collect data on father's involvement in pre-school care and childbirth. The information was collected between March 2017 and March of this year.


Although the study indicates an increase in health awareness, the number of men who do not care about their health is still high. 36.36% of respondents said that they did not have the habit of going to these places when asked about the habit of finding public health facilities. Of this, 47.57% (6,455) reported that they were never needed, lack of interest or not.

"Many injuries can be avoided if men take regular preventive measures," the ministry said.
