Abstract: Objectives: to evaluate and critically analyze the information quality on health and the institutions and professionals’ role on the matter. Methodology: exploratory ecological study of secondary data from SIM and SINASC. The frequency analysis was carried out through the R and TabWin programs. Results: when analyzing the contents’ rate of mandatory fields in death declarations, It was found that in case of infants death 30% or more of the information was missing. The original documents handling allowed to find more than one kind of pen and writing type. The average rate of missing information in the live births declaration was 1% in Alfenas and 0,28% in the Regional Health Care. Conclusion: perinatal mortality is a significant health factor, which reflects directly the delivery and pos-delivery health care quality. Although a unique model for death declaration has been established since 1976, its correct fulfillment still presents a number of problems, such as missing information in the mandatory fields, which prevents the correct situation diagnosis. Information poor quality generated by documents of exclusively medical responsibility indicates that the death declaration is seen as only one more bureaucracy request rather than a source of basic data for planning and evaluation of public health policies. Therefore, it is necessary and urgent to revisit the performance of the medical professional, formation institutions and class entities.
