AZEVEDO, Adriano Valério dos Santos; SILVA, Marcos Antônio da  and  REIS, Tomás Collodel Magalhães. Promotion of health in the context of significant social networks. Nova perspect. sist. [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.63, pp. 55-66. ISSN 0104-7841.

The promotion of health values the development of actions that seek to foster the integrality of individuals and groups, considering that the social relations considered significant are generating quality of life and health. The present text aimed to present the relationship between health promotion and significant social networks. The concept of health promotion was contextualized through public policies, and the definition of meaningful social networks was complemented with the presentation of the research and intervention instrument called the network map. We sought to present research that related significant social networks and health evidencing contributions in people's lives. Based on an example of network map application, the results were presented considering the concept of health promotion and psychosocial repercussions. The conceptual approaches between health promotion and social networks were verified, which allows to emphasize the importance of articulated actions considering that the social bonds represent integral health protection factors.

Keywords : Health promotion; Significant social networks; Social Psychology.
