In 1992, the Director Board of the School of Public Health of the University of São Paulo (FSP - USP) and of São Paulo’s Public Health Association (APSP) have partnered to carry out an editorial project. From this initiative stemmed the Journal Saúde e Sociedade, which is at present a consolidated reference of the interface between Social and Human Sciences in the fields of Public/Collective Health.

In 2020, with the end of the agreement between the partners, the journal Saúde e Sociedade became a publication of FSP / USP, maintaining as its objective the dissemination of interdisciplinary scientific production in the area.
