In this four-person interview, Martine Bungener, Janine Pierret, Sébastien Darbon and Marcel Goldberg, founders of Sciences Sociales et Santé, look back at the scientific, administrative and social conditions that led to the creation of this journal. They recall the major steps that marked its development and the difficulties encountered over the years; they also take stock of the multidisciplinary project that was at the heart of this creation. Prospects for the journal are outlined, in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and in a context where interest in the field of health seems to be renewing itself and extending into the social sciences, an interest that has been partly aroused by opportunities for funding research contracts.
