ROSA, Walisete de Almeida Godinho  and  LABATE, Renata Curi. Family health program: the construction of a new care model. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2005, vol.13, n.6, pp.1027-1034. ISSN 1518-8345.

The Family Health Program (FHP) arises as a new strategy for health care and reorganization of the care model. Based on these presuppositions, this article aims to reflect on the potentialities and contradictions of the FHP in the care model change process. The study adopts a descriptive-reflexive methodology and presents two themes, based on literature: historical revision of health policies in Brazil and FHP and the care model change process. The analysis made it possible to perceive work in teams and with families as a progress in the FHP. However, there is a need for a broader perspective in the formation of professionals to work with the new proposal, as well as to implant the teams.

Keywords : health policy; health services; family health program.
