MAGALHAES, Rosana; BURLANDY, Luciene  and  SENNA, Mônica de Castro Maia. Social inequalities, healthcare and well-being: opportunities and obstacles on the horizon of transversal public policies. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.6, pp.1415-1421. ISSN 1678-4561.

The development of a distributive justice model that is responsive to new claims and demands in the social policy field requires in-depth examinations and critiques of the ways in which public policies are drawn up and implemented. Reconstituting and analyzing different institutional dynamics, decision contexts and program performances emerge as tasks that are crucial to the quest for alternatives ways of strengthening integration and empowerment experiences. The purpose of this article is to present these issues and help affirm commitments to transversal and convergent public actions combating poverty, social exclusion and unequal healthcare.

Keywords : Poverty; Public policy; Health equity.
