A household survey of health and illness in rural Bolivia

, : A household survey of health and illness in rural Bolivia. Bulletin of the Pan American Health Organization 14(4): 343-355

The Government of Bolivia and the US Agency for International Development have undertaken a demonstration project to provide low-cost health services for the Montero region of central Bolivia. Before implementing the project, a survey was made to determine the population's initial health status. A total of 3372 subjects of all ages were included in the survey, which was during the last 3 months of 1977. Over half (52%) of the survey population was less than 15 years old.
