SILVA, Marcos Antônio da  and  AZEVEDO, Adriano Valério dos Santos. Women in community projects: social networks and health promotion. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.4, pp. 436-448. ISSN 1413-294X.

This article aimed to map the significant social networks of women in a community project establishing relationships with health promotion. Three women participating in a community project in a city in the south of Brazil were interviewed. The network map and sociodemographic questionnaire were used. The network map sought to analyze the structure, function, and attributes of the bond, then the relationships with the founding values of the National Health Promotion Policy were verified. It was found that the significant bonds are concentrated in the family, in community/community project, and in friendships and work relationships, through emotional, material support, and cognitive guidance. Aspects of health promotion related to happiness, solidarity, co-responsibility, humanization and social inclusion were identified. The results of the network map represent health promotion indicators that allowed the development of work, income and leadership in women for the construction of life projects.

Keywords : significant social networks; health promotion; community project; family; women.
