Intersectoriality is a much-discussed topic, but not the challenges for its implementation between public health policies and social assistance. With the revision of the state of the art of the theme, we discuss in this article the main challenges of intersectoral work among such policies. The categories polysemy, policy cycle, bureaucracy, social participation and equity guide the debate with the method of interpretive analysis. Although it can respond to the multifaceted social demands, avoiding damages of the sectoral fragmentation, the intersectoriality is not solution for every problem of public management. However, its relationship with popular participation may confer greater equity in the proposals of the analyzed policies.
