This opinion piece by several authors is based on a text that describes the conflict between the Mapuche community and a physician from the healthcare system of the province of Neuquén when the Mapuche women entered the sexual and reproductive health program. Opinions are expressed in two different ways: first, with specific reference to the text and then, as a subjective elaboration. Among the issues analyzed in more depth are the regulations governing health-care system interventions and the power relations between genders and among different cultures.
Keywords : Gender and Health; Culture; Sanitary Planning; Ethnic Group and Health; Sexual and Reproductive Health.
