CHAO, Daniel. Special and marginal: towards a problematization of the state intervention regarding the health of Malvinas veterans (1984-2000). Salud colect. [online]. 2019, vol.15, e2205. ISSN 1669-2381.

The aim of this paper is to account for the modalities in which Malvinas veterans’ health was constituted as a problem requiring state intervention between 1984 and 2000. In order to do so, we have focused on the concept of problematization as a way to analyze practices and political thought. The text consists of three sections: the first one presents the methodological basis of the analysis of public policies, whereas the second and third ones intend to analyze a series of laws, bills, decrees, reports and other documents produced by different state spheres about war veterans and their health situation. The hypothesis that we propose is that the Malvinas veterans were problematized as a marginal segment of the population, although the stabilization of a specific treatment took more than fifteen years to materialize
