MARTIN AGUDO, Mónica Y.; SIERRA QUESADA, José M.; JIMENEZ MARTIN, Juan M.  y  ESCUDERO ESPINOSA, Cecilia. Expectations and Needs Detected among Professionals at Provincial Organizations Working in Intersectorial Action in Health. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2007, vol.81, n.1, pp.43-52. ISSN 2173-9110.

Background: Intersectorial Action in Health has been the methodology proposed for reducing inequality in health. The objectives of this study are to ascertain what experiences, expectations and needs are perceived to exist among the professionals working at provincial organizations in order to propose a framework for analyzing and carrying out intersectorial work. Methods: With a qualitative design, 21 semi-structured individual surveys were conducted in July 2005 of professionals from provincial justice, education, health, equality and welfare organization and from law enforcement officials in Granada and Seville. An intentional «snowball» sampling was used, in which it was possible to complete the profile table by way of two individuals answering the survey. Results: The professionals identified needs which it would be necessary to cover with the intersectorial work as well as the grounds for the same. They highlighted a number of personal traits and some organization-related ones and identified factors which have been divided among, political, social and operative factors. Conclusions: A consensus exists as to pointing out intersectorial action as a way of guaranteeing the reduction of social inequality, given that it prevents doubling resources and unifies the response being provided. It was thought to be fundamental for some profound changes to first be made in the provincial organizations culture in or for the intersectorial work to comprise part thereof. These changes must go along with clear-cut guidelines at the upper levels of social movements which will clearly highlight the need for a certain intersectorial action in particular.
