GOMES, Romeu  and  NASCIMENTO, Elaine Ferreira do. Public health research output related to males and health: a bibliographical review. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2006, vol.22, n.5, pp.901-911. ISSN 1678-4464.

This study focuses on the research output in the relationship between males and health in the public health field. The objective is to critically analyze the most recurrent ideas on the specificities of maleness in the health-disease process. The method consisted of a literature review in public health, based on a qualitative research approach. Male sexuality, masculinity, and reproduction and masculinity and power were the themes found in the analysis. The study concludes that further research on masculinity is needed with a focus on gender, nationality, class, age, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

Keywords : Men's Health; Review Literature; Qualitative Research.
