DIDES CASTILLO, Claudia and PEREZ MOSCOSO, María Soledad. INVESTIGATIONS ON REPRODUCTIVE AND SEXUAL HEALTH IN CHILEAN INDIGENOUS POPULATIONS AND THE LACK OF ETHNIC RELEVANCE. Acta bioeth. [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.2, pp. 216-222. ISSN 1726-569X. doi: 10.4067/S1726-569X2007000200009.
This essay argues about the ethnic relevance of investigations carried out in Chile on sexual and reproductive health from 1990 to 2004, based on a national diagnosis on the subject. Most of these investigations did not consider the cultural and ethnic diversity of our country, so this is a pending issue. Furthermore, the tensions implied by the lack of ethnic relevance in investigations about sexual and reproductive health are also raised
