LEITE, Jáder Ferreira et al. Production of senses in health services: a study with men in Natal-RN. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.1, pp. 126-144. ISSN 1677-1168.

This study analyzed meanings produced by men in primary health care services used by them in Natal city. We examine two contexts: a basic health service (BHS), located in a middle-class neighborhood and a family health service (FHS), located in a popular class neighborhood. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 24 men, 12 of each of the services. The findings produced are linked to experiences lived by the men in services, especially regarding the professional-user relation and the provision of the service offered. In BHS group, the low degree of resoluteness was appointed by the majority, generating meanings of service inefficiency. In FHS case, the meanings have a positive relationship with the service, which we believe to be related to the nature of FHS. Health care for men should be thought of in direction of their specific demands, considering gender perspective in order to achieve a greater understanding of health needs of the male population
