BOTELLO, Blanca et al. Methodology for health assets mapping in a community. Gac Sanit [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.2, pp.180-183. ISSN 0213-9111.

Within the development of a regional strategy for community health engagement in Asturias (Spain), and connected to the Health Observatory, we carried out a methodology to initiate the mapping of health assets at a local level. This methodology begins with a description of the most formal resources and of the pre-existing community activities, together with a characterization of the most informal, personal and symbolic health resources. We introduce our tools, grouped for the development of mapping, and explain their connection with the theoretical models of salutogenesis, asset model and community development.

Keywords : Community health; Salutogenesis; Health promotion; Social determinants of health; Health assets.
