El estado de la salud sexual y reproductiva en América Latina y el Caribe: Una visión global

Listed author(s):

Este documento resume el estado de la salud sexual y reproductiva (SSR) en algunos países de América Latina y el Caribe, usando las encuestas de Demografía y Salud para seleccionar países de acuerdo con la etapa de la transición demográfica en que se encuentran. Los resultados indican avances en algunas dimensiones, siendo la situación mucho más favorable en los países de fecundidad baja y en los grupos de mayor nivel social. Sin embargo, aún se presentan vacíos importantes, especialmente en los países de transición rezagada. La evidencia sugiere que la falta de información y de acceso a los servicios de SSR, al igual que la existencia de barreras sociales y culturales, limitan el ejercicio pleno de la vida SR de las mujeres de los países de fecundidad alta y grupos menos favorecidos.
