Integration/SUS-Education is a project that articulates education and experience in the field of public/collective health for the education of psychology students from the perspective of the integration university - service - community in Salvador, Bahia. The partnership with the San Francisco Health Center (SMS-Salvador) and the IPS/UFBA Psychology Faculty unites two incentives: 1. guarantee the insertion of students in work contexts as they graduate in the field of public/collective health, particularly in the basic health care and 2. optimize resources to strengthen the school program Health and Prevention, with a focus on DST/HIV/AIDS. The present project trained 308 undergraduation students, realized 149 workshops Tree of Pleasures, involved 4.550 young people, and distributed 8.500 condoms in 15 public schools in Salvador between 2007 and 2011. This process has contributed to the teaching-learning process developing abilities geared toward basic health care and illustrating the potential of the CS - SF as a reference service for youngsters and for psychology students.
