Map of Health it is a geographical description of distribution of human resources, activities and services offered by the Unified Health System and the private sector, considering the existing installed capacity, investments and performance measured from indicators of health. Aims to enable the orientation of the decision of managers and support the definition of guidelines, objectives and health goals, as well as the preparation of the Annual Programming of Health and the conformation of care networks. The aim of this study is to report the construction experience of the Map of Health of the V Regional Health Management of Pernambuco (GERES), in year 2012. This is a descriptive study, where the construction of the Map of Health of  V Regional was conducted by a multidisciplinary health team, consisting of professionals from nursing, nutrition, physical therapy, pharmacy, psychology and social work. The regional data were investigated, the year 2012 through the national database, available from health information systems. The Map of Health presented data from the following items: socio-sanitary conditions; structure of the health system; supply and coverage of health activities and services; health care networks; flows access; financial resources; work management and health education; science, technology, production and innovation in health; health management. Despite the ease of access to this data, it realize a lack of integration, quality and presentation by these information systems. Integration failures of health data incur multiple, repetitive and disjointed information systems. The variability clippings prevents intersectoral actions are planned together. For this reason, it is important the development of the Map of Health by an interdisciplinary team, aiming to expand the conception of the phenomena linked to health-disease process. The construction of the Health Map represented an arduous, disquieting and exciting production, which sought to portray the health profile of V GERES of Pernambuco. It serves as a challenging device because its density and magnitude showed how much we still need to improve, to have a role in more effective and consistent with the health needs of the population.
