Health care has been the theme of several debates and there many different ideas related to it. There are many productions towards this topic and the demand for a "humanized health care" is strong. This paper analyzes the "humanized health care" questioning the ideas of human, health and care, as well as the practices in health. We propose an idea of health care which emerges in the encounter of the different actors who attend health centers, in a relationship where the other is understood as a legitimate, founding a transdisciplinary clinic that produces deviations, changes, subjects and ways of life.
