Many advances are occurring in child health related to reducing child mortality and increasing coverage of health services, in order to reach the challenges to improve the quality of health interventions. It was identified in these challenges a significant contribution that nursing can offer through its participation in the dimensions of research, teaching and practice, searching for new elements to the care in child health nursing, in view of the importance of early diagnosis, participation of the family, increase of systematic interventions and longitudinal follow-up, given the peculiarities and specificities of the child and his family. This project aims at analyzing the experiences of mothers/caregivers and nurses in the daily care of children, from the perspective of health care, vulnerability and longitudinality, looking for subsidies to create knowledge and practices in the context of primary health care in child health. This project is organized into subprojects with the following themes: nursing and protection of child health (subproject 1), pneumonia in children and primary health care (subproject 2); longitudinality, vulnerabilities and health needs of the child (subproject 3). Interviews and application of structured instruments will be used for data collection, as well as supplementary data from secondary sources. From a quantitative approach, subproject 2 will be a case-control study of hospital-based to investigate factors associated with hospitalization by pneumonia among children under five years old, with an explanatory model that includes the hierarchical relationships between the exposures and the outcome, with application of the Instrument APS-PCATool, the use of conditional logistic regression, and following the assumptions of hierarchical modeling and analysis developed using the software STATA. From qualitative approaches, the subprojects 1 and 3 will use the hermeneutic perspective and thematic analysis, which are useful for identifying values, judgments and particularities of subjects' experiences. Because it is a research with participation of human beings, the recommendations of Resolution 196/96 of the Brazilian Health Consort will be followed. Results will bring subsidies for nursing care and help broaden the understanding of care in child health within the primary care health. (AU)
