Guatemala's 1987 National Survey on Maternal and Infant Health (ENSMI) took place between September-December 1987. 5,160 women were interviewed between 15-44, providing health information for 4,581 children under 5. Guatemala's population is estimated at 8.2 million with a 2.8% growth rate doubling in 22 years. Emigration has prevented the growth rate from being higher. Outcomes from the ENSMI demonstrated that there is chronic malnutrition between infants 12-36 months with more than 2/3 of infants in this age category suffering from growth retardation. 1 of every 9 children dies before the age of 5. Infant mortality is highest among children that: 1) live in rural zones; 2) have illiterate mothers; 3) have mothers who are under 20 or between 40- 44; 4) were born before 2 years of previous birth spacing; and 5) were born as a 7th or later child. Additional factors leading to infant mortality include the lack of prenatal care and medical assistance during delivery; only 3 out of every 10 births (5 years before the survey) had professional medical assistance during deliveries; diarrhea remains the leading cause of death between infants 6-23 months, with few receiving ORT; only 1/2 of those 12-23 months had an official vaccination card and the majority of children <1 are not protected against tetanus. 1/2 of Guatemalan women are married and have their 1st child by 20 and breastfeeding is practiced for an average of 20 months. The average number of children is 5/6 with 1/2 the women stating that they do not want additional children and 1 of every 4 wanting to space their next pregnancy for 2 years. The contraceptive prevalence rate is 23%

This study provides preliminary data on the National Demographic and Health Survey for 1989. The sample aimed to interview 1000 women, 15-49, in each of Bolivia's 9 departments. A total of 7923 interviews were done. Fieldwork was from February 20-July 23, 1989. The instrument aimed to collect information on fertility rates, intended fertility, marital status, marital experience, knowledge and use of contraceptives, and practices relating to maternal and infant health (diarrheal and respiratory diseases, breast feeding practices, and causes of child deaths 5 years before the survey). The global fertility rate for Bolivia is 5.1, while it is 3.7 for Latin America. 41% of those 15-19, and 70% of those 25+ stated not to want any children demonstrating a potential need for family planning services. 73% of Bolivian women in reproductive ages know of or have heard of a modern method of contraception. 22% of all women and 31% of women in relationships were practicing the rhythm method at the time of the interview. The most prevalent method used is rhythm; followed by IUD and female sterilization (5%). Prevalence rates on uses of contraception vary by age (higher with women 30+), residential zones (urban 39% and rural 19%), level of education (53% of educated used contraception over 12% illiterate), and numbers of children a women has had (28% of those with 2 or less children use contraception as against 37% with 3-4 children). 16% of those 5 had diarrheal episodes in the last 24 hours and 28% in the last 2 weeks. Only 28% of mothers used oral rehydration therapy. While there were significant regional differences in the incidence of coughing and in getting medical attention, 33% of children in urban areas and over 18% of rural received medical attention
