ZULIANI A, Liliana; BASTIDAS A, Miriam  e  ARIZA M, Gustavo. Participation: social determinant in the development of public policy. Rev. Fac. Nac. Salud Pública [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.1, pp.75-84. ISSN 0120-386X.

This paper presents the results of a research carried out in 2009 and 2010 with individuals from the political, technical and social fields who participated in the Public Policy for Food and Nutritional Improvement created by the Government of Antioquia. This program was conceived as a model of participatory construction that promotes health and welfare. OBJECTIVE:to understand the participation process of different people in the design of Ordinance 17, which establishes the Food and Nutritional Improvement Public Policy. METHODOLOGY: an interpretive instrumental case study was conducted using a qualitative approach. The information obtained from interviews with the participants and from the literature review was heuristically analyzed. RESULTS:individuals from political, technical-methodological and social areas participated actively in this project. Likewise, they made several contributions at different moments of the construction of the Food and Nutritional Improvement Public Policy for Antioquia. CONCLUSION: The Plan and The Policy became a referent for the construction of other policies, plans or similar programs. They were significant because it transformed the community and was legitimate; even though there were difficulties during the process, they proved the importance of having intersectoral work and an integral view of such complex social problems.
