COSTA, Pedro Henrique Antunes da  and  MENDES, Kíssila Teixeira. Conjuncture in health: contributions to and for psychology from marxism. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.1, pp. 157-171. ISSN 2177-093X.

This theoretical-reflexive article aims to present the contributions of the dialogue between Psychology and other fields of knowledge for understanding and acting in health, considering the conjuncture of neoliberal offensive. From concepts and categories of the Marxist tradition, the article has the following structure: brief conjunctural analysis emphasizing the SUS and health policies; contributions of know-how fields to Psychology in dealing with health, especially political economy; Psychology's contributions, exemplified by the Liberation and Community Social Psychologies; and final notes, rescuing the radicality that managed such movements in Psychology and also in health. Assuming the incompatibility between health and capitalism, it is essential to appropriate this knowledge, thinking about how, from Psychology and health policies, but especially beyond them, to solve concrete needs, to demonstrate the contradictions of this system, contributing to their suppression and health production.

Keywords : Psychology; Brazilian National Health Service; public health; public policy.
