MARTINEZ, Octavio. Table of survival, possibility of life and more life With regard to the english social reform of 1832. Acta Med Colomb [online]. 2015, vol.40, n.4, pp.326-330. ISSN 0120-2448.

The guarantee of health in the nineteenth-century English political order in which the average length of life was determined by the status of the individual in the class structure, was not possible in front of a state devoid of health management organizations an health public control, in addition to the overwhelming influence of a selfish, individualist and privatizing economic sector, and the absence of active citizenship which could foster the management of collective and political action spaces. The advent of mathematical artifacts such as table survival was necessary to convince the liberal social and political body of the epoch of the possibility of getting more and better life, and begin the long march of democratic political participation towards the status of citizens. (Acta Med Colomb 2015; 40: 326-330).
