Les déterminants du recours aux médecins généralistes des hommes et des femmes : constructions sociales de la distance et inscriptions territoriales

Abstract : This article examines the interactions between gender and the city through a public health policy: colorectal cancer screening. We analyze urban representations and practices of men and women through the use of trajectories and criteria mobilized by individuals when choosing their GP (key player in this programme). Two cities are compared: Boulogne-Billancourt and Gennevilliers. The complementarity of quantitative and qualitative approaches shows that individuals mobilize multiple criteria. Then, we propose different dimensions of the notions of proximity and distance. Indeed, people strategies result from both economic factors (price of the consultation) and geographical ones (proximity of the surgery to the home); but also social representations of medicine and health care professionals such as their cities. Finally, these strategies are articulated with gender (role of women in the management of the health of the family or entourage) illustrating the relationship between men and women, and the links of men and women with their cities.
