NOTHAFT, Simone Cristine dos Santos et al. Implementation of hydroelectric plants in Santa Catarina: impacts on the health of the affected population. Aletheia [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.2, pp. 55-66. ISSN 1413-0394.

ABSTRACT The construction of hydroelectric plants causes changes in the environment, changing the territory, and impacting local public policies. Transformations occur in the social, cultural and health context of the population. The objective of the study is to analyze the health impacts caused by the construction of hydroelectric plants. This is a quantitative study using an environmental health matrix as an instrument for data collection and analysis. The data are for the period of five years prior, which correspond to the period of construction and after the construction of the plants. The score obtained in the study through the health matrix indicated that hydroelectric power plants have a severe impact on health, considering local environmental, socioeconomic conditions and the potential frequency of increase or appearance of diseases. The periods corresponding to the years of construction and after the installation of hydroelectric plants are those that had the greatest negative impact on health.
