(Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se analizan los factores sociales, étnicos y regionales que determinan la desnutrición infantil, así como los efectos del acceso a los servicios médicos en la región Andina, mediante la comparación de las condiciones imperantes en Ecuador, Perú y Bolivia. Estos tres países se caracterizan por una elevada incidencia de desarrollo incompleto y considerables disparidades socioeconómicas, regionales y étnicas. En este análisis se emplean datos de la Encuesta demográfica y de salud de Perú (1992, 1996 y 2000) y de Bolivia (1997), así como datos de un estudio de cuantificación de los niveles de vida de Ecuador (1998). Se adopta una perspectiva internacional comparativa y se analiza a Ecuador con un nivel especial de detalle.
