This paper is an attempt to synthesize several models of health and levels of affluence in Latin America.
An analysis is accomplished wherein various countries and regions of Latin America are classified for health purposes as either products of a poverty model or a wealth model.
Variables utilized include:
mortality rates in preschool children and infants;
and overall causes of death.
All three of the general models can be found in different parts of Latin America.
More developed countries and regions tend to approximate the wealth model where chronic and degenerative diseases dominate.
