MetadataShow full item record
Volume I is a compilation of documents, facts and information by PAHO in order to provide PAHO member governments an analysis of the health situation in the Region. It presents information on health conditions in 43 countries and political units in the Western Hemisphere and clearly will add to a greater understanding of social and economic development in the Americas. The main purpose is to analyze the major health problems and health status in the Region without a discussion of what actions are being done to solve these problems. This volume concentrates on health at the regional level and is divided into three main sections: 1) "General Context," containing information on socioeconomic and political factors, demographic characteristics, and mortality; 2)"The Health Situation," containing chapters on child health, adult health and problems affecting the general population; and 3) "Health Systems Infrastructure," including a summary analysis of resources available to solve the described health problems. An annex with reference data supports the statements in the text. Vol. II
