RUEDA-BARRERA, Eduardo Alfonso. Critical Theory, Risk and Justice in Public Health. Rev. Gerenc. Polit. Salud [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.22, pp.12-25. ISSN 1657-7027.

In this paper I discuss the relevance of the program of social critical theory to examine the demands for justice in public health from a non-reductionist perspective -that is, a not sectorial one- that accounts for the intimate relationship between health and social arrangements and allows further exploration of the fundamental question about the necessary conditions for human self-realization.

Keywords : critical theory; society; health; justice; risk; human self-realization; Health systems; Social justice; Critical theory -Social aspects; Equity in health- Colombia.
