Public health and Nursing in Argentina is a book that brings together problematic issues and very strong debates about social history of health and disease, since the restoration of democracy in 1980. This book constitutes the first project that encompasses the historic discipline that deals with the structure and consolidation of the medical corporation as a professional group, and the emergency raised by the epidemic outbreak of the 19th century, the study of the emergence and consolidation of the sanitary distribution during the 19th century and the delimitation and implementation of policies in this field of study. This project also focuses in the study of nursing as an activity exclusively related to women since they were associated with the supposed natural gifts that they had for care and attention.
