Abstract

Objective: To characterize the sociodemographic profile of the homeless population (PSR) registered in the Cadastro Único para Programas Sociais (CadÚnico) until 2019 and the tuberculosis morbidity in this population notified in the Sistema de Informação de Agravos de Notificação (Sinan) from 2014 to 2018. Methods: Descriptive study carried out with data from Sinan and CadÚnico. Results: 127,536 people registered in CadÚnico and 14,059 with tuberculosis notified in Sinan were included. Higher concentrations of PSR were observed in the South and Southeast states. In the two subpopulations analyzed, there was a predominance of male PSR (CadÚnico = 86.8%; Sinan = 80.9%), black race/skin color (CadÚnico = 67.5%; Sinan = 64.1%) and low education (CadÚnico = 81.9%; Sinan = 60.1%). The high dropout proportion (39%) of treatment was evidenced by the high percentage of reentry and relapse. Conclusion: Tuberculosis still remains a serious problem that aggravates the condition of survival on the streets of Brazil.
