Scope of study: This research was carried out at a primary health care unit in Arequipa, Peru. Objective: To identify and analyze the organizational and professional commitment of workers in a primary health care team. Method: Case study involving 12 health professionals, in the light of Meyer and Allen's theoretical model for Organizational and Professional Commitment, using semi structured interviews analyzed according to content analysis through subject matter. Results: The analysis led to the categorization by thematic groups on Affective, Instrumental and Normative bases. The first six were related to organizational commitment and the last four to professional commitment. Conclusions: We consider that commitment contributes to the identification of workers with their professional and organizational roles, showing greater motivation and, therefore, more involvement. Health organizations are expected to implement strategies and promote conditions that facilitate affective commitment in their employees.
