Inequalities in infant mortality

Mortality in the early years of life has dropped sharply in the last four decades in the Latin American and Caribbean countries (United Nations, 2005a; ECLAC, 2004). This progress, which was not interrupted by economic recession or by the political crises experienced in the last 40 years, is attributable mainly to a formula combining high–impact, low–cost mother and child health programmes with long–term socio–economic processes, such as the expansion of basic services, the increase in schooling and the drop in fertility.
