Health Survey of São Paulo (ISA-Capital)
The population-based Health Survey of São Paulo (ISA-Capital) is a study conducted in collaboration between the university and the municipality, and aims to evaluate health conditions and use of health services in a representative sample (i.e., adolescents, adults and older adults) of urban residents of São Paulo, the most populous city in the Southern Hemisphere, located in the southeast of Brazil.
