VAZQUEZ, Andrea  and  STOLKINER, Alicia. Processes of stigma and exclusion in health: Joints between stigmatization, civil rights, use of drugs and dependence of drugs. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp.295-303. ISSN 1851-1686.

The aim of the work is to establish joints between the stigmatization, the civil rights, drugs use and dependence of drug, as a particular case of exclusion in health. The stigmatization produces groups of persons who have problems for the exercise of citizenship. These persons are refused in the fulfillment of rights such as the right to the health. One of these groups, it is formed by the users of drugs and the dependents of drugs. It´s relevant to study the processes of stigma as accessibility barrier to the attention in health, to identify components that diminish the above mentioned exclusion. (OPS/OMS,2005). The reduction of the stigmatization and the discrimination of the use of drugs and dependence of drug, it's fundamental for the elaboration of policies of incorporation from logic of respect for the human rights.

Keywords : Stigmatization; Exclusion in health; Drugs use; Dependence of drug; Rights.
