AbstractThis study presents the results of a qualitative survey carried out with professionals working in the Health Family Program in the State of Minas Gerais. It aimed at analyzing Health Family teams' professional practices with women submitted to situations of sexual violence. The data were collected in a workshop, having as theoretical support for analysis both the categories gender and gender violence. It was verified that sexual violence against women involves several questions on the singular, particular and structural levels of reality, something that health professionals must think about. Caring for women in sexual violence situations will only be effective if various sectors work together, with clear, efficient public policies and adequately trained health professionals.
