CHIARA, Magdalena. Territory, Public Policies and Health. Towards a Construction of a Multidimensional Approach for Research. Rev. Gerenc. Polit. Salud [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.30, pp.10-22. ISSN 1657-7027.

Objective: This paper proposed a conceptual framework to overcome the limitations the disciplinary approaches face when analysing the processes of implementation of health policies on the territory. Method and framework: With this purpose, it established links between the contributions from three fields: the studies on the performance on health care, the theoretical contributions provided by geography, and the research on public policies and implementation. Results: As a result of this approach, it is possible to capture phenomena and processes that, from each of the particular disciplinary perspectives, are opaque for the analysis: on one side, conceiving health attention as a point within a whole that compromises different notions of territory; on the other hand, recognise that at the moment of the implementation on the territory there is a process of recreation of the institutions, where they appear on scene and negotiate different regulation logics.

Keywords : public policies; health policy; interdisciplinary studies; geography; primary health care; Health Plan Implementation.
