RUANO CASADO, Luisa  and  MERCE VALLS, Elisa. Current status of the salutogénesis in Spain: fifteen years of research. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.34, pp.384-394. ISSN 1695-6141.

After centuries with a pathogenic vision of care of health, in the 1970s the medical sociologist Aaron Antonovsky introduced a model of health that had become a concept established in the public health and the promotion of health, 'Salutogenesis', that proposes to understand health as a continuum between welfare and disease, instead of a vision where health and disease are mutually exclusive, by coinciding with the current approach of World Health Organization. The main goal of this paper is to lead a review and analysis of its study and use in Spain, where it is progressively introducing with more than 10 articles, an European Conference, a Symposium with experts from all over the world, an European Seminar, the creation of a Salutogenesis Spanish Group and with a National Convention of Healthy-Salutogenics Universities among other activities. Is necessary to work from the public health policies, in coordination with the health services and education, highlighting the importance of the universities, in order to train future professionals from the active view of health promotion.

Keywords : Public health; Health promotion; Salutogenesis; Sense of coherence; Training.
