Sympathetic to missionary proselytisation in the region, and desirous to bolster the standing of the Medical Department of the Navy, Messer suggested that tetanus was most likely to occur in victims possessing a ‘superstitious dread’ of poisonous arrows. The social, physical, and mentalhealth of the inhabitants of the Santa Cruz group, and of those who visited, were therefore said to be contingent upon the spread of Christian belief and modern medical understanding.

Argentina’s Supreme Court, from 2003, ruled several times on
this question of the balance between the right to the truth and the
right to privacy.28 In respect of minors, the Court’s tendency has
always been to approve the imposition of DNA tests, on the principle of ‘the child’s best interest’, the right to privacy and the duty of
the state to prosecute those responsible for the stealing of children.
In respect of adults, the jurisprudence is

persist through schooling: ‘lower family socioeconomic position is
an important predictor of lower levels of educational attainment’
(Pickett and Vanderbloemen 2015: 4). The causal links between socioeconomic inequality and unequal educational outcomes are complex
and multiple and include distribution of mentalhealth problems, job
security and debt which impact on parenting styles and consistency
as well as the provision of good housing and nutrition. These factors

Social psychiatry and psychology had great impact on the Eugenics Society, in particular its secretary C. P. Blacker, who was a close friend of Malleson. The latter was a keen supporter of the use of psychological frameworks.
In 1935 she had already recognised the necessity to expand the work of the clinics towards the incorporation of advice on sexual
