Abstract

Este trabajo examina los efectos de la expansión del agua en los barriadas urbanas de Argentina. Se encuentran grandes reducciones en la presencia, frecuencia y severidad de episodios de diarrea entre los niños de las viviendas que han sido alcanzadas por la expansión de la red. Aún más, las conexiones de la expansión de agua inducen ahorros ya que estas familias pueden sustituir agua de cañeria por agua de procedencia más distante y más cara. Estos efectos de ahorro y salud también son importantes para las viviendas que previamente tenían conexiones clandestinas a la red de agua, que era gratuita pero de baja calidad.
