The community health, a mean to fight against social inequalities of health? Considering the definitions and the basic principles which support the primary health care and the community health, namely the equity, the community participation, the use of technologies suited for the resolution of the problems, the multisectoriality and to have as focus of interest a prevention policy, we can assert that the community health can contribute in a relevant way to fight against the social inequalities of health. This try is a set of elements which contribute to make plausible this hypothesis by taking into account health policies implemented in Senegal.
