Conference Paper
This text -originally presented at the Fourth National Community Health Forum held in Bogotá, Colombia, from 9 to 11 September 1998- is dedicated to reflection on the relation between social communication, popular participation and communication strategies. Using a question and answer format, it addresses the differences between communication and information based on the traditional paradigms and, in a complementary manner on the relationship between social communication, popular participation and communication strategies to promote it. It also pauses to address the question of what is health and what is the communication to be established for it. Similarly it asks about the role of popular participation in health, as well as what communication does to improve and expand it. Finally, it discusses planning in health communication.
