The present paper presented an approach to the analysis of the Social Determinants in Health model of the World Health Organization from a theoretical perspective. It underlined the structural determinants and the role of the social exclusion processes as factors to be taken into consideration because of their impact on the most vulnerable groups' health. It was intended to support the understanding of this problem through the submission of concepts and models of social exclusion and health exclusion, which will contribute to expand the knowledge of those people interested in this topic.
