Objetivos: divulgar a produção das diferentes áreas do saber, sobre práticas de saúde, visando ao desenvolvimento interdisciplinar do campo da saúde pública.
Areas of interest: it is targeted at the community of health professionals, professors, researchers, Public/Collective Health specialists and connected areas. Since its creation, the journal has published works from different knowledge areas that are interrelated or that are concerned about public/collective health. In this sense, it encompasses the production of different branches of the human and social sciences and of the emerging environmental science, incorporating scientific and theoretical production and also the one that is specifically related to proposals for intervention and institutional practice.
History: Given the nature of its object, Public Health is characterized as a privileged field of knowledge and practice that is open to contribution from different areas. The scientific production generated within it reflects this possibility when it takes into account the distinct dimensions of its object and also its complex amplitude, approaching themes that range from knowledge of the health-illness process to interventions on this process by means of health actions, programs, systems and policies. Considering these aspects and taking into account the similarities regarding proposition and editorial interaction strategies, 16 years ago, the direction of the School of Public Health of the University of São Paulo (FSP - USP) and of São Paulo’s Public Health Association (APSP) decided to establish a partnership to carry out an editorial project. It was in this context that the editorial project of the journal Saúde e Sociedade was formulated. Today, it is a consolidated journal in the areas of Public/Collective Health and Human Sciences.
The joint publication of a journal (FSP-APSP) has been an innovative action in the publishing field of the health area. The articulation between these two institutions represented a new strategy in the search for increments to disseminate the technical and scientific production of the area. In addition, it enhanced the knowledge exchange between institutions related to teaching, research and health services provision.
