Health risks in early childhood (children under six)

During the 1990s, the region made significant progress in providing households with basic sanitation services, which are closely linked to childhood morbidity and mortality rates. Nonetheless, most Latin American countries still have very high percentages of children under six who live in dwellings with no drinking water supply (10%-60%) or waste disposal system (20%-80%). The health risk is even greater in rural areas, where there is often no water treatment facility, and access to public health services is more limited.
