BRETAS, Ana Cristina Passarella  and  OLIVEIRA, Eleonora Menicucci de. Intersection points between the gerontological, health and working knowledge areas: questions for reflections. Saude soc. [online]. 1999, vol.8, n.2, pp.59-82. ISSN 0104-1290.

The present study is intended to present and discuss a number of selected theoretical referents concerning the Gerontology, Health and Work knowledge areas. It seeks the mediation between those areas in order to understand the meaning of the aging process when related to the working market and its implications either for individual or collective health. The study was developed within historical and political contexts based on the globalization phenomenon, with the predominance of neoliberal policies thought. From this point of view, it discusses the productive changes the work market has been presenting while emphasizing the structural unemployment problem and its consequences for individual and collective health and aging processes.

Keywords : Health; Aging process; Work.
