SANCHEZ-CASADO, Laura; PAREDES-CARBONELL, Joan J.; LOPEZ-SANCHEZ, Pilar  and  MORGAN, Antony. Asset mapping for health and coexistence: proposals for action from an intersectoral perspective. Index Enferm [online]. 2017, vol.26, n.3, pp.180-184. ISSN 1699-5988.

Justification: Salutogenic mainstreaming can enhance cross-sectoral coordinated action and optimize health resources. Goals: To describe the process and results of the intersectoral development of a map of active health and coexistence. Design and Methods: A qualitative descriptive study with a sample of 14 managers and healthcare professionals and 12 local technicians. Four individual semi-structured interviews, two groups and two group dynamics were carried out. A thematic and semantic content approach was used to analyse data. Results: 76 assets concerning people (11), groups (2), associations (20), institutions (11), services (15), places (8), cultural expressions (4) and local economy (5) were identified. The map allowed actions to be proposed from positive (promotion of healthy eating and aging, physical exercise and mental health) and deficit prospects (access to health services, poor housing and social exclusion). Conclusions: Intersectoral identification of community assets can generate and optimize health promotion proposals and coexistence.
