Traduction en anglais : Economic expansion and health crisis.
In spite of the rapid economic development experienced by Paraguay during recent years, the country's health conditions remain among the poorest in Latin America.
This article strives to explain, by presenting a model of Paraguay's economic and health care systems, why health ire and economic growth have not advanced at the same rate.
By examining various economic and health care indicators, hospital registries, family planning activities, and statistics on drinking-water and health care services distribution among central departments with established populations, as well as recently populated peripheral areas, the conclusion is reached that the country's poor health conditions might be the direct result of accelerated expansion of the agricultural frontier.
