Abstract: The intersectionality approach emerged in the late 1990s in the field of black feminist activism in the USA, as a critique of one-dimensional analyses of social inequalities. This descriptive-analytical narrative review presents the current state of theoretical- methodological inclusion of intersectionality in public health. Seven scientific literature databases were consulted: Web of Science, Embase, Cinahl, Scopus, Sociological Abstracts, Lilacs, and Medline, resulting in 1763 papers. After duplicates were eliminated and the titles and abstracts screened, 30 papers produced in five countries between 2006 and 2017 were selected. The analysis, structured into three central themes (theoretical-methodological debates, social markers - gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation - and health policies and practices), shows intersectionality to be a promising analytical resource for understanding and facing the global challenge of inequalities in health.
