French Abstract: Partant du phénomène de judiciarisation croissante des politiques de santé au Brésil, le texte traite de divers aspects de la protection judiciaire du droit public à la santé face au principe de la tripartition des pouvoirs, au contrôle juridictionnel des dénommés pouvoirs discrétionnaires technico-administratifs, à l’extension aux citoyens des effets favorables de la décision judiciaire – qui bien qu’ils n’aient pas participé à l’action en justice – se trouvent dans la même situation factuelle et juridique, et, finalement face au besoin de stabilité budgétaire de façon à supporter l’efficacité des décisions judiciaires. English Abstract: Based on the increased judicial role in examining healthcare policies in Brazil, this paper presents different aspects of judicial safeguarding of society’s right to healthcare under the principle of three branches of government, judicial control of the so called “technical administrative discretionary prerogatives,” extending the favorable effects of court decisions to citizens who are in the same factual and legal situation, even if they did not join in the claim, and finally the need for budget support for the enforcement of court decisions.
