SOARES, Marisa da Silveira et al. Preliminary report of reflections on prevention of impasses facing diseases of social-environmental causes. Inf. Epidemiol. Sus [online]. 2002, vol.11, n.3, pp.167-176. ISSN 0104-1673.

Facing diseases of social-environmental causes is frequently troubled by misunderstanding among communities, public power, and scientists, inspite of the availability of abundant and appropriate technical resources. This work is based on the experience of reflections about difficulties encountered by an interdisciplinary and multisectoral group and proposes dialogue as a method to prevent impasses between sectors, disciplines and subjects. The methodology consists of a process, still in progress, based on the consolidation of a multisectoral and interdisciplinary group accustomed to dialogue. Discussions of this theme generated the proposal of a project about human behavior regarding water-borne diseases in municipal districts of Rio de Janeiro. Another product was a text suggesting methods for achieving dialogue.
