SANCHEZ-LEDESMA, Esther  and  GRUPO DE TRABAJO DE PRIORIZACION et al. Community prioritization in Barcelona Salut als Barris program. Gac Sanit [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.2, pp.187-192.  Epub Dec 07, 2020. ISSN 0213-9111.

Prioritizing corresponds to the process of selecting and managing health needs identified after diagnosing the community's health needs and assets. Recently, the health needs assessment has been reinforced with the community perspective, providing multiple benefits: it sensitizes and empowers the community about their health, encourages mutual support among its members and promotes their importance by making them responsible for the process of improving their own reality. The objective of this paper is to describe the prioritization of Barcelona Salut als Barris, a community health strategy led by the Barcelona Public Health Agency to promote equity in health in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods of the city.

Keywords : Health needs; Prioritization; Community action; Citizen participation; Health inequalities.
