CARDOSO, Claudia Lins. The "Joints Efforts of Health" as interdisciplinary action of Primary Health Care. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.spe, pp. 177-193. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study aimed to describe one of the interdisciplinary actions developed in one of the tutorial groups of the Labor Education Program for Health (PET-Health) of the Federal University of Minas Gerais: the Joint Efforts of Health. The PET-Health aims to promote the teaching-service-community integration and education by working in Primary Health Care actions, developed in the public institutions linked to the Unified Health System (SUS). The Joint Efforts of Health were collective mobilizations carried out by members of the PET- Saúde Primeiro de Maio (Health - First of May), focusing on the Elderly´s Health and Women's Health. Its main objectives were to disseminate health promotion in formation, promote the adoption of new healthy life styles and exercise of interdisciplinary practices in primary care. Experience has shown that the objectives of the Joint efforts of Health have been achieved and that they were configured in an effective interdisciplinary action of Primary Health Care.

Keywords : Primary Health Care; Interdisciplinarity; PET-Health.
