    ABSTRACT: An analysis was made of irrigated perimeters as a geopolitical strategy for expanding Brazilian agricultural frontiers and the "development" of the northeastern semi-arid region with respect to social determinants in health in rural communities. Research was conducted in the Chapada do Apodi in the states of Ceará and Rio Grande do Norte between 2007 and 2011. Various research techniques and tools were adopted, such as research-action, ethnographic studies, questionnaires and laboratory exams, water contamination analyses, social cartography and focal groups. In the context of agribusiness expansion, it was revealed that public policies of irrigation have had consequences for health, labor and the environment with the implementation of the Jaguaribe-Apodi Irrigated Perimeter in Ceará. The social and environmental conflict and resistance in the phase prior to the installation of the Santa Cruz do Apodi Irrigated Perimeter in Rio Grande do Norte was significant as it had consequences for the health-disease process on rural communities. It is important for the evaluation of public irrigation policies to consider the impacts of the perimeters on the lifestyle, labor, health and the environment of the affected territories.

    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to reflect on the quality of life provided in nursing practices seeking Health Promotion, a discussion that happens since the International Conference on Primary Health Care in Alma-Ata (1978), later reinforced in the Conferences on Health Promotion and that is directly related to the quality of life. This is understood as the perception that someone has about their life in the cultural and social context, associated with desires, goals and expectations, and influenced by health conditions. The nurse plays an important role in all levels of care, being an essential professional to promote changes in the lifestyle of the people that promote health and consequently in the quality of life, through their care and "empowerment" of the person and their family. Some experiments confirm the health promotion of nursing practices with patients with certain chronic conditions, individual or collective. We conclude that it is necessary to increasingly sensitize the health and nursing staff, especially for health promotion in the context of SUS, who collaborate to improve the quality of life of society.

    ABSTRACT: Ethic challenges of public health are traversed by micro and macro social determinants, requiring the health service to be focused on the scope and its population's needs. Therefore understanding the interface between territory, environment and health is important. Territory is the space of the daily sociability of the social group who inhabit it, not reduced to administration limits. Health depends both on the micro territory and the macro natural and social environment, since represent the social determinants of life reproduction. So, the first ethic challenge is the construction of an assistance model which integrates primary care and the surveillance knowledge on the health needs of this territory. Another challenge is to build intersectoral actions, politically jointed and compromised to face social determinants and environmental damages that affect the health of population, improving their life quality.
