Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.3, pp.643-654. ISSN 1678-4561. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232004000300016.
The work shows the strategies to building healthy spaces that have been developed by a partnership between the PAHO, a University (UNICAMP) and IPES. These projects are being developed in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. One of these experiences is happening in Campinas, in a region formed by poor neighborhoods, where it is being built the Healthy Community Project. The other involves more than eighteen Counties that form the Potentially Healthy Counties Network. The exercise of implanting these projects is being not only a collective, but also continuing learning, because teachers, representers of the public services, other organizations and communities/counties must review wishes and purposes in the direction of the healthy life.
