Results Contributes to the teaching program of medical school to train general practitioners, with good technical-scientific training, better able to understand the epidemiological profile of a community, ready to intervene effectively in a health reality, so that favours the articulation and strengthening of existing spaces in the associations participating in the project, and joint support from other public representations and non-governmental organisations.
