Abstract of a paper presented at the 2nd Health International Conference on Health Informatics and Technology, 2015: Introduction: Because public health funds are limited, programs need to be prioritized. We developed two indices to prioritize public health based on chronic disease risk factors (CDRF-PHI) and diseases (DZ-PHI). Conclusions: Identified public health priorities varied across the 27 Brazilian capital cities. PHIs summarize and harmonize data from multiple indicators, health conditions and factors.
