DIAZ RODRIGUEZ, Delia Rosa et al. Stratification of the risk of HIV/AIDS. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.3, pp. 2-7. ISSN 1561-3194.
The epidemiological stratification allowed identifying the Popular Councils of the municipality with similarities in the behavior of diverse risk factors with the purpose of selecting the sites that presented the highest risks in the increase of seropositive incidence (HIV/AIDS) to establish the epidemiological surveillance and control of this health problem applying health interventions regarding the conditions of each stratus to draw up a plan and to arrange the resources. An epidemiological, descriptive and cross-sectional research was conducted with the purpose of stratifying the risks (HIV/AIDS) in the municipal Popular Councils and distribution of the factors chosen during January 2007 to December 2009. The target group was comprised of the Popular Councils in San Cristobal, where the differences obtained were compared among the "cases" Councils and "control" Councils to the factors chosen: presence of the contacts with HIV/AIDS carrier, cases with misconduct or inappropriate conduct and reclusive behavior, lack of information about the disease and non-observance of the security norms. The opinion of the experts on the subject was conclusive to determine the epidemiological stratus of the risk to establish a plan of intervention considering the measures that favour the inter-sectorial and community participation.
