NEVES, Claudia Abbês Baêta  and  MASSARO, Altair. Biopolitics, healthcare production and another humanism.Translated byMaria Aparecida Gazotti Vallim. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1414-3283.

The aim of this text was to reflect on the production of a humanization policy for the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS) and its influences on healthcare management and production practices. For this, we have developed discussions on the concept of humanism, the ways in which capital power strategies function biopolitically and the present-day challenges of constructing public healthcare policies that have the aim of affirming the processes of autonomy, thereby registering another way to produce humanization of care and its management.

Keywords : Humanization of assistance; Biopolitics; Public healthcare policies.
