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.

Obesity and diabetes are affecting the peoples of the Americas at high and increasing rates. National surveys demonstrate that obesity is increasing in prevalence among all age groups. Studies in Chile (2000) and Mexico (2007) have shown that 7% to 12% of children under 5 years old and one-fifth of adolescents are obese (1), while in adults, surveys carried out between 2002 and 2007 in Central America and Belize, for example, have shown rates of overweight and obesity close to 60%. 

Research has demonstrated a strong and consistent link between obesity and diabetes.
