Abstract

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..
