    Afin de montrer l’utilité de la géographie des risques pour aborder la notion de « risque sanitaire », cet article tente de faire une synthèse sur ce concept en confrontant plusieurs défi nitions du risque et une vision globale de la santé. Le schéma qui en résulte pose la question des domaines et des acteurs concernés par la gestion et la prévention des risques. Qui décide ? Dans quel contexte ? Nous proposerons au fi nal un bref éclairage sur la diffi culté et les enjeux présents derrière la prise de décision en matière de risque sanitaire. Este artículo sintetiza diferentes aspectos del riesgo y una visión global de la salud, para mostrar la utilidad de la geografía de los riesgos, en el concepto de “riesgo sanitario”. El esquema relaciona las áreas y los actores relativos a la gestión y prevención de los riesgos. Quién decide? En que contexto? Se propone y ofrece una luz, dentro de la difi cultad que supone, y las consideraciones que están detrás del proceso de toma de decisiones en materia de riesgo sanitario.
