RAMASCO-GUTIERREZ, Milagros et al. Health vulnerability mapping in the Community of Madrid (Spain). Gac Sanit [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.5, pp.432-435.  Epub Nov 30, 2020. ISSN 0213-9111.

The Public Health General Directorate of Madrid has developed a health vulnerability mapping methodology to assist regional social health teams in health planning, prioritisation and intervention based on a model of social determinants of health and an equity approach. This process began with the selection of areas with the worst social indicators in health vulnerability. Then, key stakeholders of the region jointly identified priority areas of intervention and developed a consensual plan of action. We present the outcomes of this experience and its connection with theoretical models of asset-based community development, health-integrated georeferencing systems and community health interventions.
