However, a gateway badly drawn can compromise the input, one hand, and the coordination of the flows, on the other. The social costs (inequities) and economic (ineffective) are huge. In this context and considering the geographical nature of this practice, this article aims to discuss the territorial planning of the gateway of the SUS in Pouso Alegre, Minas Gerais. Therefore, it is a discussion of limits and ways of planning these limits. The methodological procedures used included a theoretical phase, through the investigation of regulatory instruments of the policies primary health care in Brazil; and another phase of a practical nature, by mapping the limits of operation of units primary health care, one hand, and the limits of socio-territorial inequalities, another. The results indicate inadequacy territorial between the limits political-administrative of the primary care services and the limits of socio-territorial inequalities.
