Strategies of self-production and the humanization of SUS

This article aims at the discussion of the relationship between the strategies of self-production and the National Humanization Policy as one of the principles assumed by SUS in the public health field, attempting to reflect on the condition of Humanization in the collective health field. To do so, we discuss the ways this policy has articulated discoursive productions about the individual subjectivation mode and the control devices that intend to shape modes that transcend the human condition. In order to produce such a discussion, we have used an approach based on contemporary theorists, mainly foucauldian concepts of technologies of self and subjectivation modes that take discourse so as not to extoll what a concept means, but what is produced from it.
