Resumen

LLANUSA RUIZ, Celia; SANCHEZ LOMBANA, Rita  y  RODRIGUEZ PENA, Lidia. Programa de pesquisaje por alfafetoproteína en Ciudad de La Habana: Evaluación de aspectos organizativos e impacto psicosocial. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 1998, vol.14, n.1, pp.43-47. ISSN 0864-2125.

The screening of congenital malformations among pregnant women is conducted in Cuba Since 1982, and their alpha-fetoprotein levels are also evaluated. For this reason, a survey was applied to 100 pregnant women who receive attention at the Provincial Genetics Department, in Havana City, due to their elevated alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) with the objective of evaluating the organizational aspects and the psychosocial impact ot this screening program. It was concluded that the information given to the pregnant women about the usefulness of this should be improved (18 % of them had not received any information from the doctor), although 93 % of these patients considered the screening as good
