We have analyzed the role of women and their families regarding the health group speeches and the analysis of the family records from CESFAM in an urban rural place in the Metropolitan region. It is concluded that in spite of the modern reforms boosted by the state health department the traditional role of women and their genre condition remains the same as well as their way of living supported by the classical sex division in their jobs. At the same time it is observed that in spite of the central role of women in maintaining the family health, this remains unseen and it is only observed in their responsibilities in the family circumstances.
