Effects of community factors on infant and child mortality in rural Philippines

Abejo, Socorro D

Description

The post World War II period saw a general downward trend in mortality throughout Asia and Latin America (Arriaga, 1981; Sivamurthy, 1981; Ruzicka and Hansluwka, 1982 ). In some of the countries of Asia, the decline was unprecedentedly fast during the immediate post World War II years (Sivamurthy, 1981). Similarly, in most countries of Latin America, a substantial increase in life expectancy at birth was noted in the 1950s (Arriaga, 1981). However, in the late 1960s and during the...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractThe post World War II period saw a general downward trend in mortality throughout Asia and Latin America (Arriaga, 1981; Sivamurthy, 1981; Ruzicka and Hansluwka, 1982 ). In some of the countries of Asia, the decline was unprecedentedly fast during the immediate post World War II years (Sivamurthy, 1981). Similarly, in most countries of Latin America, a substantial increase in life expectancy at birth was noted in the 1950s (Arriaga, 1981). However, in the late 1960s and during the 1970s, a slowing down of the rate of mortality decline was observed in many of the less developed countries. In some countries, the deceleration occurred when the levels of life expectancy attained were still below the maximum levels achieved by some developed societies (United Nations, 1973; Arriaga, 1981; Ruzicka and Hansluwka, 1982). The growing evidence of a stagnation of mortality decline at low levels of life expectancy in less developed countries over the past decade or so has prompted national and international groups to critically assess the social and economic policies affecting health in these countries (United Nations, 1984).
