520 3 This paper focuses on the inequalities in health,
nutrition, and population in Guatemala. It presents data
on disaggregated health status and health services
utilization that is organized by asset or wealth quintiles,
a form that enables readers to better understand the
distribution of these indicators from the poorest sections
to the richest sections of society. That is, the profile
takes data on population as well as on reproductive and
child health and nutrition from tables presented in the
Guatemala version of socio-economic differences in health,
nutrition, and population and presents them in a more
easily accessible format designed to call attention to the
inequalities that exist among socioeconomic groups. These
kinds of disaggregated data have great potential value for
the design and implementation of efforts to achieve the
millennium development goals (MDGs) for health in a manner
that can bring about the greatest possible gains for the
poor. By focusing attention on the problems suffered by
the disadvantaged groups that are of greatest concern,
these data can increase the likelihood that MDG
initiatives will effectively deal with those problems and
reach those groups. The profile also provides evidence of
successful interventions that have reached those who are
poor. The hope is that this attention will stimulate
thought about how best to reach the neediest groups with
health services and other programs.
