BARALDI, Solange; DIAZ, Monica Yolanda Padilla; MARTINS, Wagner de Jesus  and  CARVALHO JUNIOR, Daniel Alvão de. Globalization and its impacts on vulnerability and on the flexibilization of the labor relationships in health. Trab. educ. saúde [online]. 2008, vol.6, n.3, pp.539-548. ISSN 1981-7746.

In the globalization process, labor flexibilization and the population's vulnerability tend to increase. The purpose of this study is to analyze the situation of the work market in the Brazilian health sector under the light of vulnerability in the globalization context. A systematic study was carried out based on national and international technical and scientific production. The concepts of vulnerability were used as the theoretical base, as they consider not only issues that are pertinent to the health sector, but also to its relationship with the social structure and superstructure, which can integrate with each other in the framework of this sector's work conditions, which, in turn, can elucidate the formulation of policies that are more human for the workers.

Keywords : health policies; vulnerability; labor flexibilization.
