Evaluation of the Influenza-like Syndrome Surveillance: case studies in sentinel unit

ABSTRACT The article describes the implementation of the Influenza-like Syndrome Surveillance in Pernambuco through an evaluative research that incorporated the degree of implementation, the political and organizational context analysis and its influence on the implementation degree. A logic model and a matrix of indicators were developed, and a context analysis was employed based on Matus Government Triangle: government project, government capacity, and governability. It was identified that the strategy is implemented in one of the six units assessed, that the degree is influenced in different ways by the context and that more favorable policies and organizational characteristics can contribute to the achievement of more advanced degrees.
