Abstract: The race/color variable was assessed in eight national systems/modules of health information. The calculation feasibility and use of indicators were also evaluated as for this same issue under the Unified Health System. Only three modules/systems could validate three out of the 24 indicators used by the SUS Performance Index. Despite advances towards health of ethnic and racial groups, the completeness of the variable is mandatory to allow for a better evaluation of the black population heath conditions. The monitoring of this variable is recommended by improving data collection and feed. It is important to broaden the debate on ethnic and racial equity in health by applying the mentioned performance index for monitoring the black population health care by Governments and social movements.
