GONZALEZ ESCALANTE, Agustín L. Health situation analysis in the community: Its importance as a teaching activity in the primary health care. Educ Med Super [online]. 2006, vol.20, n.2. ISSN 0864-2141.

The analysis of the health situation is one of the activities contributing to higher medical education, to the formation of Family Medicine residents and is part of the medical undergraduate education contents. The importance of this analysis has prompted us to make a review aimed at underlining this activity as a teaching tool, describing its different parts and promoting its quality. The history, the linking of health situation analysis with didactic principles, its characteristics were all reviewed. Also the steps to be followed were described together with a practical guideline covering the main indications, which should be used with a historical and cultural approach. The practical guide provides the necessary elements to draw an educational strategy based on the main health problems and applicable to the formation of human resources, thus facilitating the medical improvement and the development of postgraduate activities

Palabras clave : Health situation analysis; community-wide health diagnosis; primary health care.
