Abstract

Objective: To describe the access and use of health services in the Brazilian population according to sociodemographic indicators, according to the National Health Survey (PNS) 2019. Methods: Cross-sectional descriptive study based on a PNS sample. Prevalence and confidence intervals of data stratified by sex, education, age and macroregion were calculated. Data analyzed in Stata software version 16.1. Results: 293,725 individuals were interviewed; men had a lower proportion of medical consultation indicators (66.6%) and sought less health care (17.6%). Among those living in the North region, 69.1% went to a medical appointment. 16.5% of less educated individuals obtained medication through the Popular Pharmacy Program. Conclusion: The results reinforce inequities in the use of and access to health services in Brazil and the need to monitor indicators to guide health policies.
