The Saúde Mais Próxima program, conceived and implemented by Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, took on the mission of taking the pulse of healthcare provided to all citizens of the Lisbon metropolitan area, especially those who are most disadvantaged and with fewer resources to travel to hospitals and health centres. A work of prevention and awareness of the population, carried out hand in hand with the community, through the screening carried out by the mobile health units that went to meet the users. This book, two years after the creation of the program, presents the work of the Saúde Mais Próxima teams, who went to the field and carried out free screening actions for seven chronic diseases - respiratory diseases, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis , skin cancer, cerebrovascular accident –, seeking to help the population in its prevention. Several specialists also write about the situation of these pathologies in Portugal. A contribution to the diagnosis of the health of the population of Lisbon.
