Traduction en anglais : Genetic services at the community level in the State of Bahia, Brazil.
Genetic counseling services were first offered in Brazil in the 1960s within the basic institutes of biology and the public universities.
The impact of these counseling services on pubic health was quite limited.
Later, a few university hospitals began to offer such services, providing clinical and laboratory assistance.
The Genetics Service of the University of Bahia, established in 1969 within the Department of Preventive Medicine, had an important academic impact but not a comparable public health impact.
Supply was never sufficient to meet demand.
In mid-1989 a drastic administrative change occurred in the state of Bahia, as a result of which the integration of the university genetics service into the public health sector came to a halt.
