MELO, Elza Machado de et al. The Meninos do Rio Program: lifeworld, adolescence, and health risks. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2005, vol.21, n.1, pp.39-48. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2005000100005.

This study focuses on health risks among teenagers from two towns in the São Francisco River Valley (Ibiaí and Morada Nova) and slums in Morro das Pedras, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. The study discusses teaching and extracurricular activities by the Federal University in Minas Gerais in these localities, aimed at promoting health in adolescence. The authors use the Habermas communicative action theory as the main theoretical and methodological approach. The research adopted a qualitative and quantitative methodology, including dynamic observation, focus groups, interviews, and questionnaires answered by high school students. Sexuality, work, and violence were the main themes and were associated with numerous health risks. Work in the 10-to-14-year-old group was associated with nearly all types of health risks. The authors analyze the relations between context and adolescent behavior using the Habermasian concept of lifeworld colonization.
