En América Latina y el Caribe 5,1% de las muertes en menores de 5 años son debidas a diarrea y deshidratación. Sin embargo, en 11 países de la Región la proporción de los niños y niñas a esta edad que mueren por diarrea sigue siendo superior al promedio regional.

De las casi 400,000 muertes en menores de 5 años ocurridas en el 2006 en la Región de las Américas, una de cada cuatro se debió a alguna de las enfermedades incluidas dentro de la estrategia de Atención Integrada a las Enfermedades Prevalentes de la Infancia (AIEPI). Muchas de estas muertes pudieron ser evitadas mediante acciones sencillas de prevención, diagnóstico temprano y tratamiento oportuno, tanto en los servicios de salud como en la comunidad y a un costo razonable.

This is a section of the book The Challenge of Epidemiology: Issues and Selected Readings. Edited by four eminent epidemiologists, this book consolidates, for the first time, a core of landmark articles on the evolution, scope and limitations, uses, and prospects of epidemiology. An outstanding feature of the book is the inclusion of the editors' assessments of the realm of epidemiology, where it is and where it should be going. It represents a useful tool for both students and practicing professionals and provides a much-needed frame of reference for reorienting the practice of epidemiology. The book is a collection of 91 articles, grouped in five parts. The first two parts deal with the historical evolution of the discipline. This first part is introduced with the discussions of the four epidemiologists on the concept of epidemiology and its evolution.
