  1. Underlying and proximate determinants of child health : the cebu longitudinal health and nutrition study.

    Article - En anglais

    A proper understanding of infant health requires the integration of socioeconomic, behavioral, and biomedical models.

    A methodology is presented for assessing the effects of « underlying » social factors and « proximate » behavioral and biomedical factors on infant morbidity, growth, and mortality.

    The application of the methodology is illustrated by modeling childhood diarrhea, and by showing how maternal education induces behavioral changes, and how these changes, in turn, induce changes in the prevalence of childhood diarrhea.
