This chapter discusses in detail gender and power in urban Buenos Aires. It looks at the implications of existing culturally constituted gender relations for effective reproductive health service provision. The chapter also analyzes the cultural and psychosocial forces that construct STDs at the point of the intersection of three significant yet different cultural domains, namely gender, health/illness, and sexuality. A demonstration of the ways conceptions and prescriptions from these domains reinforce and neutralize one another is included.

Keywords:   gender, power, Buenos Aires, gender relations, reproductive health service provision, STDs, cultural domains, sexuality, health/illness
