  1. Socio-cultural determinans of child mortality in Southern Peru : including some methodological considerations.

    Article - En anglais

    Among Amerindian children living at high altitude in the Andes in southern Peru, high child mortality rates have been reported in the literature, especially in the perinatal and neonatal period.

    We compared mortality rates in children calculated from retrospective survey data in 86 rural families from 2 Aymara and 3 Quechua peasant communities living at the same level of altitude (3825 m) in southern Peru.

    Relations between land tenure, socio-cultural factors and child mortality were studied, and methodological considerations in this field of interest are discussed.
