Treatment Rates of Prevalent Chronic Conditions Are Low in Brazil, According to Kantar Health Research
Date:9/13/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2013

Treatment rates for the 10 most prevalent chronic conditions in Brazil generally ranged between 19 percent and 40 percent, according to new findings from Kantar Health’s National Health and Wellness Survey (NHWS). The research will be presented today at the ISPOR (International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research) 4th Latin America Conference in Buenos Aires.

Among the most prevalent conditions in Brazil, only hypertension had a treatment rate above 50 percent, with 68 percent of patients being treated. However, many chronic conditions, particularly psychiatric ones, had poor treatment rates despite these conditions being significantly debilitating. The most debilitating chronic conditions according to respondents to the NHWS were depression (treatment rate: 39 percent), anxiety (24 percent) and insomnia (19 percent).

“Despite the high prevalence of chronic conditions in Brazil, treatment rates are particularly poor,” said Dave Pomerantz, Senior Vice President, Kantar Health. “The exception was hypertension, which may be related to the free distribution of medicine for hypertension via the Farmacia Popular do Brasil. However, many conditions—especially psychiatric conditions—have low treatment rates despite being associated with worse patient outcomes, meaning that, from a public health perspective, it’s imperative to place more emphasis on the proper management of chronic diseases in Brazil.”
