    The Health, Inequalities and Social Breakdown (SIRS) survey carried out in Antananarivo in April 2003 on a representative sample of 2,807 people, is part of an international research programme designed to compare the relationships between health, inequalities and social breakdowns in different cities throughout the world. The initial assumption is that the socio-economic inequalities found within cities give rise to specific problems of health and social breakdowns and can, in certain cases, lead to deterioration in collective health security and in social cohesion within the population. The document presents the first results of this survey, with the study of the different components of social relationships in Antananarivo and the way they are related to health. Four types of relationship are distinguished : i) filiation; ii) elective participation (relationships with friends, neighbours, couple, etc.); iii) organic participation (relating to the individuals’ economic integration in the production system) and iv) citizenship (concerning all civil and political rights). _________________________________ L’enquête « Santé, inégalités et ruptures sociales » (SIRS), conduite à Antananarivo en avril 2003 auprès d’un échantillon représentatif de 2807 personnes, fait partie d’un programme de recherche international qui entend comparer les relations entre la santé, les inégalités et les ruptures sociales dans différentes grandes villes du monde. L’hypothèse de départ est que les inégalités socio-économiques inscrites dans le territoire des villes se traduisent par des problèmes spécifiques de santé et de ruptures sociales et peuvent, dans certains cas, conduire à une dégradation tant de la sécurité sanitaire collective que de la cohésion sociale des populations. Le document présente les premiers résultats de cette enquête au travers de l’étude des différentes composantes du lien social à Antananarivo et de leurs rapports avec la santé. Quatre types de liens sont distinguées : le lien de filiation, le lien de participation élective (relations d’amitiés, de voisinage, de couple, etc.), le lien de participation organique (lié à l’insertion économique des individus dans le système de production) et le lien de citoyenneté (assuré par un ensemble de droits civils et politiques).
