Present form provides to health behavior spatial analysis and its determinants, the concept of health differences differing with the unfair and avoidable inequalities in health. It is reiterate the theory that each concrete space or moment deserve an specific explanation on how health is socially produced and which are the premises and factors contributing to this process.
