[Training for Roma health advocacy: a case study of Torreblanca, Seville].
CONCLUSIONS: Our study highlighted the relevance of the photo-voice to transcend the biomedical perspective and develop advocacy actions based on the knowledge created by the community. Future research should look more deeply into the impact of health advocacy on reducing inequalities and consider the importance of involving researchers, public health professionals and the community in addressing it.

Face masks in the general healthy population. Scientific and ethical issues.
Authors: Royo-Bordonada MA, García-López FJ, Cortés F, Zaragoza GA Abstract In most European countries, facemasks use is recommended or mandatory in enclosed spaces where physical distancing is not possible. In Spain, this measure was first extended to open public spaces and later made mandatory regardless of whether or not the interpersonal safety distance can be kept. At present, there is no evidence on the effectiveness of universal masking of healthy people in the community to prevent infection with respiratory viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. The mandatory use of masks poses some ethical que...

Observing the interrelation between psychiatrization and transphobic violence, trans depathologization activist groups and allies demand the removal of the diagnostic classification of transexuality as a mental disorder. Furthermore, they have developed trans health care models and legal gender recognition processes based on depathologization and human rights perspectives. They propose changing the role of mental health...

The article shows that gender inequalities in mental health, the intersection of different axes of inequality, and the existence of a possible process of medicalization...
