Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To relate sociodemographic and clinical aspects to the quality of life of mothers of children with Congenital Zika Virus Syndrome. METHOD: Cross-sectional analytical study, conducted in a rehabilitation center in Goiânia, central region of Brazil. A sociodemographic and clinical profile questionnaire and the World Health Organization Quality of Life were used. Data analysis was performed using the Mann-Whitney tests; Kruskal-Wallis, followed by Dunnett's Post hoc; and Spearman's correlation. RESULTS: The sample consisted of 30 mothers of children with Congenital Zika Virus Syndrome, with a mean age of 30.57 ± 6.67 years. Mothers who had a partner, leisure activity, who used a car as a means of transport and who had a child with congenital syndrome with microcephaly had a better quality of life (p<0,05). CONCLUSION: The quality of life of these mothers was related to sociodemographic and clinical aspects, which suggests the need for more specific public policies for this population.
