Traduction en anglais : Implemiting comprehensive genetic services in developing countries: Latin America.
The application of advances in genetic knowledge and technology to services for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of genetic diseases is proceeding rapidly in developed countries.
These advances offer, among other things, new methods of prenatal diagnosis based on molecular genetics.
However, developing countries are still not benefiting fully from these advances for reasons that are rooted in sociopolitical and economic underdevelopment.
This article analyzes some of the factors preventing rational and progressive development of general health services, and genetic services in particular, in the developing countries of the world.
