HEALTH & SOCIETY Magazine consolidates itself more and more in publications through its numbers in an editorial space of reference for the Health interdisciplinary field knowledge divulging, in particular with its Human, and Social Science interface.

This profile gives that Magazine a plurality of themes, and questions so evidently approached by the articles that treat research results, theoretical-methodological reflections, and experiment reports in the field of social practices, among them Health ones. The great number of articles coming to be published, demanding an intense flow of specific opinions and forwarding of their results, have given the Editor Council the opportunity to select, and group similar themes; thus, making it extremely possible for Health and Society to have numbers that are particularly focused in some especial social reality aspects.

Exactly in this sense it brings a team of articles in this number, which has a concern about the Brazilian Health Sole System (SUS), especially into two huge groups, that is, one cares for public management, the other one cares for the organization of its practices, particularly health basic attention. This poses a great variety of emergent questions from this ample health public system, a reference to various public, national and international, policies.

Not less important, Health and Society Magazine also brings articles which transmit reflections belonging to the field of scientific knowledge, though near to Human and Social Sciences, thus ratifying what we have started in this editorial, that is, the necessary and proper plurality of Health, either collective or public.
