The epidemiologic situation in the Region of the Americas has undergone major changes that have altered the age structure of the population, the rate and extent of urbanization, the labor market, education levels, the ecological situation, and the organization of health services. More than any other factor, however, the situation has been influenced by the existence of deep social inequities and the growth of the population living in poverty.

This two-volume work describes the changes that have occurred, with emphasis on the period 1989-1992. The first volume presents a regional overview of the health situation in six chapters plus an annex of health and developmenti indicators. The second volume is made up of country reports that summarize the salient processes and problems in each country.

The CD performs under the FOLIO VIEWS 3.1 search software which delivers numerous options and tools to quickly and easily search, retrieve, query, and customize data.
