Health promotion, protection and recovery depend on the complex interaction of multiple factors that operate both at the individual and the collective levels. with regard to brazil, the historical social inequality is also evident in the diverse disease patterns in the Brazilian population, which still suffers from a high incidence of certain communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis, but is plagued  various chronic-degenerative diseases as well, linked to unhealthy ways of living, which are largely socially determined. the subprojects under this heading include studies that chart specific aspects of biological processes underlying specific diseases and / or its causal agents, seeking  possible points of intervention for their prevention or treatment, as well as the analysis of the production of knowledge at the population level aiming to ground initiatives both in research and public policies  that contribute to improving the quality of life and the general health of the Brazilian population, having the  sustainable development goals as a reference. for the  subprojects closer to the micro dimension of understanding disease mechanisms we have the application of cutting edge laboratory techniques, already in development with international partners, that will be boosted and expanded in their implementation and production of results applicable to health practices in multiple dimensions (oral health, prenatal care, detection and treatment of Chagas disease, among others). in the macro dimension the notion of sustainability is emphasized, both in the actions to take place with regard to professional training and the design of public policies, as well as contributing to the improvement of sanitary status of populations as a prerequisite for the desired sustainable development. The projects arise from mature Graduate Programs, with an interdisciplinary perspective, including the health and life sciences and the social sciences. All the participating programs, led by the GP of public (collective) health (Capes level 6), have a strong history of contributing to the development of health research and care in our country.
