    Montevideo, Uruguay, Centro Latinoamericano e de Perinatalogia y Desarrollo Humano, 1979 Feb. 128 p. (Publicacion Cientifica del C.L.A.P. No. 790.)

    This report investigates the status of maternal-infant services in the rural areas of 18 Latin American countries, and presents statistics on fetal, infant, and maternal mortality in the same countries. Methods and types of personnel used for the attention of pregnancy and delivery are described, together with recommendations for improvements from such international organizations as WHO and PAHO. The important role of practical midwives in all Latin American countries is stressed, as is the need for their training, especially for what concerns the identification of high risk pregnancies. The report includes a brief description of programs already implemented in 14 countries, and compares them to similar ones existing in the U.S., Holland, Nigeria, Tanzania, Thailand, China, and Ethiopia. The report concludes with recommendations from the Latin American Center for Perinatology and Human Development on simplifying perinatal care in Latin American countries.
