PINHEIRO, Thiago Félix  e  COUTO, Márcia Thereza. Men and condoms: possibilities and limitations in the construction of Men's Health. BIS, Bol. Inst. Saúde (Impr.) [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.1, pp. 49-55. ISSN 1518-1812.

This article analyzes the dispensation of condoms in the context of Primary Health Care (PHC) and, based on this analysis, discusses the relationship between masculinities and health. It uses a qualitative methodology approach and presents ethnographic research conducted in four health services (two in the state of Pernambuco and two in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil). It points out limitations and potentialities of the facilities of PHC for the realization of the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STI)/AIDS and the promotion of sexual and reproductive health. In this context, the dispensation of condoms configures itself as a possible bridge between men and services. The analysis of data points to the need for reflection, based on gender perspective, about the inclusion of men in the context of health services, and for approach of masculinities, especially in the current scenario of the implementation of the “ Brazilian National Men's Health Policy (PNAISH)”.
