RIBEIRO, Cláudia Regina; GOMES, Romeu  y  MOREIRA, Martha Cristina Nunes. Meetings and disagreements between men's health, the promotion of participatory parenting and sexual and reproductive health in basic care. Physis [online]. 2017, vol.27, n.1, pp.41-60. ISSN 1809-4481.

In this article, we discuss three health actions developed in basic health units in three cities of different Brazilian regions, and focused on human health, promoting participatory fatherhood and sexual and reproductive health. It is a qualitative research in which data were built on interviews with 17 men, users of the health system and involved in these actions, and observations. In analyzing the data gender concepts, masculinities and integrality were brought in a special way; as analysis methodology, we used the hermeneutic-dialectic perspective. Among other things, we concluded that men realize that gender issues still constitute impediments to this insertion, as well as the system itself organization; and that actions are organized in tight and piecemeal acting on isolated aspects of health male, not contemplating the principle of integration and hindering the promotion of the relationship of these men to the system for primary health.

Palabras clave : men's health; parenthood; sexual and reproductive health; integrality; gender.
