For several years I have been investigating about topics of Integrative Medicine, a Medicine with a holistic vision of human being, which includes also complementary medicine. In my Master Studies in Applied Ethics I focus on Medical and Care Ethics. For my Master Thesis "Human Right to Health, Integrative Medicine and Empowerment" I am researching at the CLAEH University in Uruguay about Humanism in Medicine. In field research I am investigating about emancipatory grass-roots health movements in Latin America. Medical pluralism and ethnomedicine, the vision of the human being in health care systems, the handling of vulnerable persons and autonomy are part of my research activities.

Keywords: Medical and Care Ethics, Integrative Medicine, Human Rights, Latinamerica, emancipatory grass-roots health movements, empowerment and autonomy, violence and old age care, structural violence, holistic vision of human in medicine, ethnomedicine, medical pluralism.
