Abstract

MAZZEO, Victoria. The situation of health-disease-care in early childhood in the city of Buenos Aires between 1990 and 2002. Salud Colectiva [online]. 2007, vol.3, n.3, pp. 285-300. ISSN 1851-8265.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1851-82652007000300006.

Starting the 1990s a process of increasing inequality impinges on society with sectors that, as a result of labour precarization, register higher difficulties to have access to goods and services either due to lower income or to loss of their social rights. In this context children represent the group of higher vulnerability where social, economic, cultural and environmental conditions are determinant factors of their health situation. Therefore, the purpose of this article was to describe, for the 1990-2002 period, using secondary data, the changes in early childhood mortality and the child health care of the City, differentiating social groups and/or spatial areas.

Keywords : Health-Disease Process; Health Care Sector; Morbidity; Infant Mortality.
