YNOUB, Roxana Cecilia. Analysis of Services Targeting Family Violence Against Women in Greater Metropolitan Buenos Aires, Argentina. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1998, vol.14, n.1, pp. 71-83. ISSN 1678-4464. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X1998000100015.
This study presents a diagnosis and evaluation of the availability of services related to family violence against women in Greater Metropolitan Buenos Aires, Argentina. The paper focuses on institutional development, theoretical foci, intervention modalities, and production of information and research. Existing networks and interprofessional relationships are also described. Results point to several noteworthy theoretical perspectives. Some programs include gender as an issue, while others do not. The relationship (more informal than formal) between governmental and nongovernmental organizations is also a relevant issue. The paper concludes by proposing these institutional experiences as a model for the design of new public health policies.
