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.
