The adult population accounts for a rising proportion of premature deaths worldwide. Adult health isues have often been overshadowed by international concern to improve child survival. Yet, increasingly, developing countries need to confront many of the challenges and dilemmas in the health sector that are familiar to the Western World. At the same time, most continue to experience a heavy burden of mortality arising from widespread poverty, from the tropical environment, or from high levels of violence. This book considers major issues of public health importance for dadults in Latin America. The interdisciplinary nature of mortality analyses is emphasized throughout.
