SANTOS, Rejane Rosaria Grecco dos; FREIRE, Isadora; PIZZINATO, Adolfo  and  ROCHA, Kátia Bones. The professional's perception for the implantation of the rapid test for HIV and Syphilis in Rede Cegonha. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.3, pp. 17-29. ISSN 2177-093X.

The article investigates the evaluation of the Primary Health Care (PHC) professionals about the implementation of the HIV and Syphilis rapid test in the care policy for pregnant women (CPPW). This is a qualitative, descriptive and exploratory study, which were conducted 13 semi-structured interviews with professionals, and analyzed from the thematic analysis. The results show a lack of knowledge of professionals about the innovations of CPPW in PHC. The professional received trainings for the rapid test, but the matricial support, with longitudinal supervision with specialized professionals, was considered inexistent. The test request of the pregnant women is released of compulsory form. Counseling is restricted to the pre-test of HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), and just informative, disregarding the specifics of pregnancy. It is necessary to rethink the women's autonomy during the prenatal care and counseling and to construction these spaces as a moment of empowerment and welcoming.
