COSTA, Leandro Araujo da et al. Rural Family Health Strategy: an analysis from the perspective of popular movements in Ceará. Saúde debate [online]. 2019, vol.43, n.spe8, pp.36-49.  Epub 07-Ago-2020. ISSN 2358-2898.

The conquest of the constitutional right to health has not been enforced in various scenarios. Considering this reality, in 2011 the National Policy for Integral Health of Countryside, Forest and Water Populations (PNSIPCFA) was published. This article aims to analyze the practices of the Family Health Strategy (FHS) in agricultural territories in Ceará. This is a qualitative, descriptive study, conducted with five popular movements, with 3 respondents from each movement, totaling 15 participants. Semi-structured interview and discourse analysis were used. The movements pointed out that there was an expansion of the FHS in the Countryside, with advances in access to health, despite some restrictions. The More Doctors Program stood out as a relevant milestone. The movements have the challenge of seizing the PNSIPCFA and contribute, along with the FHS, to the expansion of popular participation in health and recognition of popular knowledge and practices, considering the social determination of health.
