Resumen

BERTONE, Carola Leticia; ANDRADA, Marcos Javier  y  TORRES, Víctor Eduardo. Social determinants of infant mortality due to reducible causes in counties of northwest of Argentina. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2021, vol.19, n.2, pp.6-20. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2021.019.02.6.

We aim to compare the social determinants of health (DSS) between the departments of the Argentine Northwest with a high risk of reducible neonatal and postneonatal infant mortality and the rest of them, between 2010 and 2014.

Consideration of socioeconomic conditions and their link with infant mortality provides essential knowledge regarding the importance of considering the environment of populations and is essential for formulating adequate public policies.

An ecological study is proposed, with census data from 2010, and vital statistics. Departments at high risk of death are identified using free Satscan software, and then a mean comparison t-test is performed for independent samples. Greater deficiencies were identified in the DSS in high-risk areas.

Palabras clave : infant mortality; social determinants of health; spatial analysis.
